  • A stunning ancient mosque, severely damaged by the earthquake of the centuries and only provisionally mended. One can only hope that this piece of jewelry from blue tiles soon found a sponsor and talented craftsmen. It is a titanium work.

  • On the first glance maybe not too much to see, but if you take a close look on the details you will be excited. You will find a unique combination of tile and brick decoration. Around the entrance Tiling is not just flat, it's 3d. A pitty there is not more left, but what you see is enough to imagine how great this mosque once was. Beside decoration you should watch for the floorplan. It's a unique solutions to place a dome above a square plan.
  • Blue Mosque is in the city center and easily accessible by bus, taxi or you can walk if you stay in the city center. The mosque has was built mid 1400 and damaged in an earthquake around 1700. Despite the renovations you can see authentic blue tiles which have been decorated the mosques through several hundred years.

  • Nice historic mosque in the middle of Tabriz. It is very famous because being built in around 1500ad by the Jahan Shah but destroyed following several earthquakes. Sadly today only the entrance remain the only part that lasted trough the time. It is however one of the oldest mosque and the unique blue tiles have been restored partially on the inside. Not to miss if you like a bit of history.
  • Historical landmark but not really that impressive. If you have 200 000 rials too much certainly go.
