The Blue Mosque (Persian: مسجد کبود Masjed-i Kabud, Azerbaijani: Göy məscid) is a famous historic mosque in Tabriz, Iran.
It was built in 1465 during the reign of Ak Koyunlu's Sultan Y‘aqub ibn Uzun Hassan by the orders of Salehe Khatun, daughter of Jan Beigom Khatun of the ruling royalty. After dying, Uzun Hassan was buried in the southern part of the mosque.
The mosque was severely damaged in an earthquake in 1778, leaving only the entrance iwan. The mosque was reconstructed in the early 1900s by the Iranian Ministry of Culture.
It is called "the Blue Mosque" because of the blue tiles that were used to cover the building. Most of these tiles have been detached by earthquakes. However, some of them can still be seen on the walls of the building, especially in the entrance gate.
