Marand's Jame'h Mosque
The Jam'eh mosque in Marand is located in the center of the city of the same name (eastern Azerbāijān region) and apparently at the beginning it was a temple of the Sasanian fire; later on it was transformed into a church and into the Islamic period into a mosque.
The main area, with a six-domed ceiling, constitutes the fundamental spaces of the mosque. The mihrab, located in the southern part, is embellished with Koranic verses in Kufic characters and with beautiful stucco and modern workings.
Today the floor of the mosque is three steps lower than the level of the adjacent alley and a long 12 meter corridor with three domed arches connects the entrance with the Shabestan.
