Overview

It was built during the reign of Alaaddin Keykubad I, an Anatolian Seljuk Sultan, in 1224. The brick parts of the mosque belong to the first period of the mosque while the stone parts to that of later period. This monument is unique as it is the sole of example of a plan with four eyvans (a vaulted room with one side open to a court) of the Greater Seljuk ruled in Iran. Its altar is adjacent to its dome. It has an internal courtyard with garden and pool outside.The mosque is decorated with turquoise and purple tiled mosaics and columns having geometrical stars and joggles as well as an inscription on the arch and tiled zigzag shaped mosaics. The internal part of the dome is decorated with the magnificent mosaics coated with the bricks. The lower parts of the dome are decorated with the brickworks revealing the geometric art of triangle shapes.

A historical mosque. Well maintained. The arches are so magnificent and grand as if they were just built. If you plan to pray there. Better wash before going. I don't recommend you use the toilets there.
