The first part is a minaret which its form demonstrates its history. It could be built in Seljuk era and is located near by the mosque. It is made of an octagon base and its cylindrical body. There are two inscriptions installed on this minaret. The first one shows the Ozon Hassan Agh Ghoyonlou’s order and seconed one which its date of production backs to 878 Hijri-Qamari and presently is kept in the National Heritages Museum.

The entrance gate also is made of wood.The third part is in fact the old mosque which includes dome and four arches. Almost part of the building is brick made and are used rarely.
