The Jame' Atiq Mosque of Qazvin is one of the oldest mosques in Iran.
It is located in Qazvin, in Qazvin Province.
The oldest part of the mosque is said to have been constructed by the orders of Harun al-Rashid in 807CE. Later additions were made, the last being during the late Safavid era. The double layered main dome of the mosque is from the Seljuk era, and is locked to the public. It houses some precious examples of relief calligraphy from medieval times. Renovations have also been carried out on many sections of the mosque
In spite of the devastating Mongol invasion, the mosque still stands today in its full glory. It is still in use. Parts of the mosque have been turned into a public library.
The mosque also contains a Shabestan and Ab anbar, both now under the protection of Iran's Cultural Heritage Organization.
