  • Mosque was originally built on the ruins of a Zoroastrian Temple, is characterized by two high towers. Will be lit up in blue at night. Sure stairs are located deep underground in the waterway is so (^ ^; you can watch the spectacle has become place of recreation and relaxation for locals during the day and relaxing.

  • Beautifully lit up at night, you see almost in its entirety from many of the city's rooftops. The Interior, full of colorful majolica and alabaster, is experienced by the population, in the true sense of the word. We must not, in fact, forgetting that a mosque is a place of worship, but especially of greeting, meeting place and rest. However I have a little dream, dream of returning to visit these magnificent places and finding less electric wires everywhere ... sorry, but I think wilt, in part, the beauty of a place.

  • A breathtaking work of Islamic architecture. I can’t get enough of this tile work, it’s precious and unique. The patterns in blue are mesmerizing, simply sublime; you can spend hours looking at them in awe, discovering new things each single time you look. At sunset the light is perfect. Don’t miss this jewel. It's not only a national treasure for Iran but a true treasure for all of humanity.
  • Tired of carrying so much hard earned currency and sick of the absolute Democracy in your country? Well you've come to the right place. Since Iran is a totalitarian theocracy and Jame Mosque is the right place to get ripped off. You could buy factory made handicrafts for unreasonable prices and even book a lame tour that has your foreign name on it with a fluctuating price. You could also book plane tickets and stuff which they'd charge you about a minimum of 35 euros for it by removing the tickets' prices and offering you a friendly fake smile. If you're a woman and like to get sexually harassed or groped, we've got hoodlum bikers who'd love to offer you the favor when you're walking the back alleys there.
  • Old monument with its islamic architecture and tall towers. Most of ceilings are nice with caligraphy arys
  • The Jame mosque is one of the attractions of the Yazd city. I highly recommend this place to visit and you can have a pleasant experience and delightful travel to the one of the touristic city of Iran.
  • Ask a guide to describe about cevastika sign in the mosque and also how it changed from fire temple to Mosque.
