There are two hypotheses about the construction date of Jabalieh Dome; first, the building dates back to the late Sasanian dynasty and was reconstructed in the Islamic period. Second, the building dates back to the post-Islamic period and was inspired by the Sasanian period’s architecture. The common point of both hypotheses is that the Zoroastrians used this building as a fire temple.
From the architectural point of view Jabalieh Dome, which is 18 meters in height, divides into three parts: the lower part is octagonal with light wells on its walls. the middle part’s diagonal is smaller than the lower part’s and contains smaller light wells on which glass has been installed during recent years. The upper part’s diagonal, which includes the dome, is less than the middle part’s. the materials used in this dome include stone and lime.
Several antique stones are preserved in Jabalieh Dome consisting of: an epigraph discovered from a mosque that dates back to 1034 (Gregorian calendar), the smallest gravestone which was discovered in Kerman province, and several other gravestones.
Jabalieh dome is surrounded by many tourist attractions such as Ardeshir Castle and Zaricf Yakhchal.
