Old, big and interesting
Jun 2019
Still not spectacular, another mosque. Very interesting architecture and gate decorations. As far as I know, the mosque was rebuilt after a big fire, maybe that's why you can't feel the spirit of ancient times.

Jameh Mosque of Qazvin
Oct 2019
The Old Mosque or the Grand Mosque or the "JAMEH" Mosque was built on the order of Aaron al-Rashid in 192 AH in Qazvin. There are several architectural works in this building, the oldest part of which belongs to the 2nd century AD and the porches belong to the Safavid period. The eastern porch has been restored during the Qajar period. Maghsura Khamarashashi was executed on the south side of the mosque by order of Amir Khamar Tash Ibn Abdullah Emadi, the Minister of Sultan Malekshah Seljuk in 500 AH. The inscriptions are written in floral Kufic script, manuscript and Solth(a kind of persian hand writings)

Poorly-reserved mosque
Sep 2019 • Family
I visited this ancient mosque with my wife and young son in the summer and I felt really sad to see this wonderful place poorly preserved. It is a pity that this place doesn't have an information center or even a bulletin to tell you a bit about its history.
By the way, I did enjoy exploring every corner of it and surely recommend you to pay a visit. You will probably enjoy walking in the yard and looking at the birds nesting under its roof corners.

Impressive mosque
Jul 2019 • Friends
This mosque is beautiful and amazingly big. There is plenty to see including a museum, and is well situated to also visit the local market etc. I removed one star because it was under maintenance when we visited hence loads of scaffoldings and impossible to visit everything for us.

Magic place
May 2019 • Friends
This is one the oldest and unprecedented mosque in Iran which is the manifestation of architectural and artistic styles of different eras .the mosque has been built on a fire temple in 1250 years ago. You can see beautiful art in all over the place and relaxing in this atmosphere is an experience that you don't have again.

Beautiful building and interior

Very impressive building; one could spend hours admiring the beautiful mozaiques. It is situated near the memorial ground for the victims of the Iran-Iraq war.

Very impressive

The exterior of this mosque is incredibly impressive with beautiful tile work. It is certainly well worth visiting and if you get a chance to go inside even better.

one of the oldest mosques in Iran
Apr 2019
The oldest part of the mosque is said to have been constructed by the orders of Harun al-Rashid in 807CE. Later additions were made, the last being during the late Safavid era. The double layered main dome of the mosque is from the Seljuk era, and is locked to the public. It houses some precious examples of relief calligraphy from medieval times. Renovations have also been carried out on many sections of the mosque.

A typical Iranian mosque with courtyard and ivans. A wonderful atmosphere, quiet, meditative. One of my favourite mosques in Iran.
