According to an inscription which shows 1239 AH year, a new mosque was built in its place and this was known as Akbarieh. The present construction is composed of two sections. The ablution segment, the nocturnal area and the porch forms the older section. Whereas, the three lengthy interconnecting chambers form the new section.
