Jame Mosque, Yazd

(4.4/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Boasting the highest pair of minarets in Iran and famed for its elegant tile work, Jame Mosque serves as a fine example of Azeri architectural style. The 12th-century mosque stands on the site of a Sassanid fire temple, and was significantly restored in the 14th century. Notice the buttresses on one side of the massive entrance portal, a distinctive feature of Iranian mosques: added in the 15th century, they keep the portal and the 52 m (170 ft) minarets from collapsing. Pay attention to the tin-glazed mosaics in the main prayer niche under the tiled dome.

  • Another stunning architecture in Yazd. The unique designs and arts on the walls which is quite typical of the era and region i.e. Central Asia. Foreigners have to pay entrance ticket. 
  • One of the main mosques in Yazd and there were stores filled around both sides of the street before getting to the mosque. The mosque was giving out free food during Muharram. It was really beautiful ...  more »

  • Free access with great tiling work on the minarets and the blue dome. The mosque dressed in another mood when the decorative lights turned on after sunset.
