Masjed-e Jameh

Southeastern Iran

Dating from 1621, Boshrooyeh's distinctive one-iwan mosque of uncoloured brick is topped with a small, turret-like minaret on its upper dome. It sits on a tiny but photogenic open space, where you'll find a beehive-shaped abanbar (water cistern) cover, a 1717 madrassa, an artist's studio and a single, wizened mulberry tree.
