There is no more impressive gateway in Iran than this great soaring 14th century edifice.

Crowned by a pair of minarets, the highest in Iran with 48m height, the portal’s facade is decorated from top to bottom in dazzling tile work, predominantly blue in color.
Inside there is a long arcaded court where, behind a deep-set southeast Ivan, is a sanctuary chamber which, under a squat tiled dome, is exquisitely decorated with faience mosaic: its tall faience altar "mihrab", Dated 1365, is one of the finest of its kind in existence.

The mosque was built on the site of 12th century building believed to have itself replaced an earlier fire temple.

In the courtyard of the mosque there is a stairwell leading down to part of the Zarch Qanat, used these days for ritual ablutions.

Address : Masjed-e Jameh St., Imam Khomeini Ave.
