Jame Mosque, Yazd
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Yazd is an extraordinary city. it has kept its old form and is far from the modern rush and filth.
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.
Very special mosque, l met with a group of university student there,they are pretty and warming. Few visitors,but enjoyable,like you lost in the dream
I love the blue lights. Looks surreal at night.
