Agha Bozorg Mosque

Posted By : mehdi rafiei/ 381 0

Agha-Bozorg School-Mosque
As the name indicates here we are dealing with a multi-function structure which is pretty and unique construction of its kind:
A modest entrance with typical 19 century painted tiles and a door with 6666 rivets hinting to the number of Quran verses;
An open corridor leading to the main dome chamber without any decoration. Downstairs an interior courtyard is accommodated by students.
Do not look for an elegant mihrab The mihrab is a hidden dent behind the pillas. This reveals a truth, the mosque is not in line with the direction of Mecca and therefore fell to the disgrace of Public shortly after its construction.
