Atiq Jame Mosque

Related to Shiraz city (located in Fars province)
Atigh Jameh mosque (Atiq Mosque) the oldest mosque of Shiraz was built in celebration of the conquest of Shiraz by Saffarid Amroleiss in the year 276 AH and was completed in 281 AH. It has been restored many times. The height of the building and its various nocturnal areas (Shabestans) with beautiful tile work on the ceilings, gives a unique charm to this place.

It is located in the east of Shah Cheragh Shrine. The entrance door of Shah Cheragh is on the west side of the mosque. Atiq Jame Mosque of Shiraz has been renovated several times. Nodbeh Wall and Khodaye Khane are some of the attractions of this mosque. It is believed that on the night of Miraj, Boragh (an Iranian-made armored personnel carrier) passed from Nodbeh Wall.  Additionally, the dome of the north Iwan and the hypostyle columns are so attracting.

In the southern part of this mosque, there is a wall called “Nodbeh”. It differentiates from other walls with a picture of colorful cedar on it. It is believed that on the night of Miraj (which means “ladder” and was Prophet’s celestial journey), Boragh (an Iranian-made armored personnel carrier) passed from this wall.

There is an Iwan and Shabestan. Shabestan is an underground space that can be usually found in the traditional architecture of mosques, houses, and schools in ancient Iran. These spaces were usually used during summers and could be ventilated by windcatchers and qanats. Northside is also known as “Imam Gate”. North gate is decorated with Mogharnas tiles.

The dome of the north Iwan (a vaulted portal opening onto a courtyard) and the hypostyle columns are the most impressive parts among the rest.
