Masjed-e Jam`s, also known as the Friday Mosque( you know these kinds of mosque as Friday mosque it is not correct because you translate Jome in Persian to Friday but the meaning of this word is Congregation), like so many important mosques, was the focus of a complex of buildings of various periods and styles in various states of conservation.
The site of a Sassanian fire temple, its major features, however, were begun in 1324 and continuously developed for forty years.( look at The sign of Chalipa Above the windows this sign has been painted 700 years ago but that Murderer( Hitler) that he slaughtered milions of people.used our peacful sign for his Crimes.we believe The Cross belonged to Ancient Persia
There is no more impressive gateway in Iran that this great soaring 14-century edifice.
Crowned by a pair of minarets, the highest in Iran.
The portal`s façade is decorated from top to bottom in dazzling tile work, predominantly blue in color.
Inside there is a long arcaded court where, behind a deep-set southeast ivan, is a sanctuary chamber which, under a squat tiled dome, is exquisitely decorated with faience mosaic; its tall faience mihrab, dated 1365, is one of the finest of its kind in existence.
The tile work has recently been skillfully restored and a modern library built to house the mosque`s valuable collection of books and manuscripts.
By the side of the Masjed-e Jam`s, along a side street to the right, was the Vaqt Va Sa`at (Time and hour) complex, now reduced to the Shrine of Rokn od-Din, who was responsible for building the complex.
The observatory (which gave its name), a library, and a Madraseh, have all vanished.
