Ganj-Ali Khan Mosque

Related to Kerman city (located in Kerman province)
This structure is in the north eastern corner of the Ganj Ali Khan aggregate of Kerman. Actually it is like a small museum, exhibiting decorative Islamic arts such as tile and plaster works as well as calligraphy. This mosque was built in the year 1007 AH. and entails 14 shops. The above mentioned aggregate is an endowment of this mosque.

With an entrance hidden away in the northeastern corner of Ganj Ali Khan Sq, this tiny but lavishly decorated mosque was once the private place of worship of Ganj Ali Khan, the 17th-century local governor who funded much of Kerman's beautiful bazaar.

Through the metal-grille gates, a narrow passage doubles back into the small chamber, which has an intricate, gilt-pattern inner dome and honeycomb windows. Climb a narrow stairway for a closer look.

The mosque is part of Ganjalikhan Complex. The Complex was constructed during the Safavid era and consists of a bathhouse, mosque, caravanserai, bazaar and mint, all gathering around a beautiful large square. The general position and architecture of the buildings is a reminder of the masterpieces like Naghsh-e-Jahan in Isfahan and Amir Chakhmaq in Yazd.
