Historical Agha Bozorg Mosque in Kashan
Lovely mosque and theological college, easy to visit with very simple architecture contrasting with some of the showier stuff you see in other parts of the world.It has a courtyard in from and behind the mosque. There is also an underground level, where the praying ceremony probably used to take place. I believe that this mosque with its quite robust and harmonious design is a must-go when you are in Kashan. It is just on the way to the historical houses.
Agha Bozorg Mosque is the historical mosque which was built in the late 18th century. It is famous for its symmetric pattern and attractive appearance. The beautiful dome is flanked by amazing minarets adorned with colorful tiles arranged in some geometric shapes. Its central courtyard and pool in the middle are a good example of Persian architecture.
This magnificent architectural wonder is very atmospheric and excellent during day time and very incredible at night. The interesting combination of mosque and madrassa (school) is really wonderful and well constructed as its courtyard is surrounded by students’ rooms. One advantage of this attraction is its location near the boutique hotels of the city of Kashan where you can stay and spend the night and visit the beauty of this mosque in the morning or evening in no time. This mosque is a symbol of simple life of the people and religious leaders in the past. The interesting point is that there are numerous parts inside this mosque which are eye-catching and attractive to take photos.
