The Blue Mosque is a famous historic monument in Tabriz, northwestern Iran; where you can see the grandeur of Iranian Islamic architecture.

Blue Mosque was constructed in 1465 upon the order of Jahan Shah, the ruler of Kara Koyunlu. It was severely damaged in an earthquake in 1779, leaving only the iwan (entrance hall).

Iran’s Cultural Heritage Organization is now renovating the beautiful mosque, preparing it for tourists who will be visiting the city of Tabriz, the capital of Muslim world in 2018.

Here are Mizan’s photos of the Blue Mosque:
