“Iran's Tallest Minarets?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Jameh Mosque sits on the edge of the ancient city and is an ambient mosque well worth a visit. Don't rush, give yourself time to sit and reflect and come at least twice at different times of the day, including evening.

“beautiful Jame mosque of Yazd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The Jāmeh Mosque of Yazd is the grand, congregational mosque (Jāmeh) of Yazd city, within the Yazd Province in central Iran. The 12th-century mosque is still in use today and rebuilt between 1324 and 1365, 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 1365, is one of the finest of its kind in existence.
It is the most beautiful monument in Yazd
