Jameh Mosque of Tabriz

Related to Tabriz city (located in East Azerbaijan province)
Jameh Mosque of Tabriz (Tabriz Central Mosque, Masjid-e-Jaameh Tabriz) is one of the historical mosques of the area. Throughout the ages this mosque has flourished and today is the seat of theology and place for religious ceremonies. It is located in the Bazaar suburb of Tabriz next to the Grand Bazaar of Tabriz and the Constitutional House of Tabriz.

Since its foundation, it has been surrounded by a market. The most ancient part of this mosque is its vast roofed area. It has an arch and domes, based on octagonal brick pillars, and covered with delicate and artistic plasterwork of the 5th century. This mosque was repaired during the rule of Mongol Ilkhanid Dynasty, which built additional sections to this mosque. Its high-altitude altar and plasterwork are reminders of that era.

During the rule of Aq Qoyonloyaan in the former undivided Azerbaijan province, a tall, tiled dome was built in the northern corner of this mosque--the remains of which can be currently observed.

Its height, solid structure and merited architecture makes for a compelling view and experts admire the skills of its architect.The oldest section of the mosque is a large Shabestan, arches and domes with brick pillars that are adorned by elegant and artistic bed, related to Rawwadid or Ravvadid dynasty.
