The mosque was built in 1187 AH (after hegira) and covers an area of 8,660 square meters. On the two sides of the entrance are magnificent tileworks and arches

The left and right corridors of the entrance are connected to the main room. Alongside the altar is a 14-step tall platform made of green marbles where the speaker has to climb a number of stairs to reach the top to address the audience

The inscription of the entrance contains Qur’anic verses engraved in Sols and Nosakh scripts, CHTN reported

Its nocturnal area or Shabestan (night prayer hall) with an area of 2,700 square meters contains 48 tall pillars of stone with a beautiful ceiling and a marble altar
