The Jāmeh Mosque of Yazd _Iran

Newer Older

The Jāmeh Mosque of Yazd (Persian: مسجد جامع یزد - Masjid-e-Jāmeh Yazd) is the grand, congregational mosque (Jāmeh) of Yazd city, within the Yazd Province of Iran. The 12th century mosque is still in use today. It was first built under Ala'oddoleh Garshasb of the Al-e Bouyeh dynasty. The mosque was largely rebuilt between 1324CE and 1365CE, and is one of the outstanding 14th century buildings of Iran.The mosque is a fine specimen of the Azari style of Persian architecture. The mosque is crowned by a pair of minarets, the highest in Iran, and the portal's facade is decorated from top to bottom in dazzling tile work, predominantly blue in colour. Within is a long arcaded courtyard where, behind a deep-set south-east iwan, is a sanctuary chamber (shabestan). This chamber, under a squat tiled dome, is exquisitely decorated with faience mosaic: its tall faience Mihrab, dated 1365CE, is one of the finest of its kind in existence.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jameh_mosque_of_Yazd#History
