Description

The mihrab is one of the few parts of the mosque with the original, unchanged and unrestored decoration. It consists of three facets and two half-facets crowned by a muqarnas (stalactice) vault contained within a rectangular frame. Arthur Pope calls it “one of the finest mosaic faience mihrabs,” and for good reason. (For general account of this Friday Mosque at Yazd, see B45.562)
