Imam Khomeini Mosque

Postby Parvaneh » Sun Mar 29, 2015 4:28 am

In the southern corner of this historical square in the city of Isfahan, one of the most important mosques of the Safavid era is located, which is known as Imam Khomeini Mosque, also known as Abbasi Mosque. This construction of this mosque started in 1020 AH during the reign of Shah Abbas the First, and took almost 26 years. It is an eternal feat in the architecture, tiling, and stone cutting of the 11th Century AH, which was registered among Iran’s national monuments in the year 1932 and has also been enlisted as a global heritage by the world body UNESCO.

The main gate of Imam Khomeini Mosque is decorated with beautiful poems. This gate’s cover is of gold and silver, and is decorated with pretty patterns. It is considered as one of the artistic feats of the Safavid era. The inscription over the main gate of the Mosque has been written by the renowned calligrapher of the Safavid era, Ali Reza Abbasi. This gate is one of the architectural and tiling masterpieces of Iran. The triangular balcony of the entry of Imam Khomeini Mosque, coupled with two turquoise 27-meter long minarets, loom over the square. Behind this balcony, there is a 52-meter long dome. Meanwhile, the Mosque’s entry corridor also manifests a magnificent architecture. The architect of this mosque has allocated two paths on the two sides of the corridor, as well.

There is a magnificent and very large pond in the middle of the mosque’s courtyard, and there are also two covered areas in the eastern and western corners of the mosque, which are similar to each other. The eastern roofed region is simple and unadorned, while the western roofed region is smaller and decorated and its altar is one of the most beautiful ones throughout the city of Isfahan’s mosques. The huge dome that looms over the roofed area is one of the tallest domes of mosques across Iran. Meanwhile, the voices are reflected at the center of the roofed area of the mosque and are heard clearly throughout the entire covered area of this mosque.

The inscriptions of Imam Khomeini Mosque over the domes, balconies, and surfaces are decorated with tiling, which are the works of Safavid era artists and calligraphers. On the southwestern and southeastern angles of the mosque, there are two similar religious schools under the names of Naseri and Soleimanieh. The presence of chambers for residence of clerics in the school’s courtyard, and the mulberry trees in the gardens has created a delightful atmosphere.

Imam Khomeini Mosque maintains differences to many other mosques. All the sections of this mosque are different from each other. For instance, the ceiling and walls’ tiling bear no resemblance to each other, and have in fact promoted the beauty and grandeur of the mosque.

The magnificence and grandeur of Imam Khomeini Mosque has attracted the attention of many experts in the field of architecture. In fact, Professor Arthur Apham Pop, the famous Iranologist, in his book on Iran’s architecture has referred to Imam Khomeini Mosque and has written that this historical mosque marks the peak of the 1000-year old history of development of mosques in Iran.
