Vahid Pourtajrishi  6/23/2014

The said mosque has been constructed on a rectangular plan. The main skeleton of the dome is related to the early mid 6th century and ranks second in antiquity to the old Jame' mosque of Qom. According to valid historical records the current dome dates back to 529 AH. Its tall south facing porch and colored encrustation of plasterwork of the dome is related to the Safavid period. The construction of the northern porch and nocturnal areas in an east-west direction are of the Qajar era.
