Friday Mosque

(Yazd) 
13 September
The Friday Mosque  in Yazd has been constructed on the spot of a former Fire Temple.  That mosque is famous for its completely tile-covered entrance and the two slim minarets on the sides. Its portal is the highest one of all Iranian mosques. The complex consists of a courtyard, surrounded by a single story arcade on three sides and an iwan on the southern façade. The Friday Mosque  is considered to be the best preserved building dating from the time around 1400. Friday Mosque (Yazd)
