A mosque, known as the Islamic house of worship, is the place of worship for Muslims. The word mosque is derived from the Arabic word masjid, which denotes a site of genuflection. Islamic decorative arts, including calligraphy, geometric patterns, and arabesque, are used in the architectural design of mosques.

Iran (IMNA) - The windows, walls, domes, and even carpets of mosques are all designed with geometric and arabesque patterns.

A mihrab (niche), a unique location on one of the walls that designates the direction to face when giving prayers, is also a prominent feature of mosques.

The minaret (ma'dhanah), which was originally an elevated position but is now typically a tower, is located outside the mosques. Five times a day, the muezzin (muadhdhin, "crier") uses it to announce the call to prayer (adhan).

For a very long time, Isfahan has been known for its historical and most well-known mosques.

Let’s enjoy some shots of Agha Noor mosque, which was built during the reigns of Shah Abbas I and Shah Safi, and as a result, the inscription above the mosque's entryway includes the names of both rulers.
