The Masjed-e Jameh is entered from both Shohada Sq and the bazaar. Well preserved, its four lofty iwans (rectangular halls opening onto a courtyard) and shimmering blue tiles date from 1349 but were extensively modernised during the Safavid period and later on. Interestingly, this mosque has no minaret. Instead there is a squat clock tower atop the main entrance (which is off Shohada Sq).
