Description

The Friday Mosque at Kerman is the first major monument built under the Muzaffarids in 1349, after the breakdown of the Ilkhanid dynasty. The tall portal arch is similar to the one at Yazd. The variety of floral motifs, the muqarnas (stalactite) semi-dome, and the inscription band framing the portal are all notable features. The tile mosaic has been heavily restored. Two minarets originally crowned the portal, but collapsed in an earthquake.
