“Iran's Tallest Minarets?”
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”
Reviewed July 22, 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
