Two-Minaret Mosque in Iran's Saghez - Tourism news

According to the locals, the building of the mosque dates back to the time of Sheikh Hassan Mulan-Abad, a mystics and famous mathematician of the Afshari era.

The tile work of this mosque is similar to the artworks from late Afshariyah and early Zandiyeh; from this, the historians conclude that the building is from the Afshari period but restored in subsequent periods. The floor plan of the mosque is almost square-shaped.

In the construction of this mosque, materials such as raw clay, mud molding, bricks, and wood were used.

The mosque pond has a brick dome with a stone-paved button. In recent years, the mosque and its pond (hose-khaneh) were registered in the national monuments list. Above the mosque, there are two high minarets, and this is why it is known as the two-minaret mosque.
