The primary construction of the Jameh Mosque of Tabriz was built during the Seljuq period, which was completed by the next dynasties and some parts were added to it till the construction became what it is today. The oldest part of the mosque is the main Shabestan (an underground space that can be usually found in the traditional architecture of mosques, houses, and schools in ancient Iran) with numerous columns which date back to the Seljuk period. Jameh Mosque of Tabriz also contains other sections which belong to the next periods; for example, the current dome of the mosque was built in Aq Qoyunlu period (700 years ago), by the king’s wife.
The main features of the mosque include old stuccos of Mihrab (a semicircular niche in the wall of a mosque that indicates the qibla; that is, the direction of the Kaaba in Mecca and hence the direction that Muslims should face when praying), the brick ceiling of Shabestan and the stunning tiling.
Jameh Mosque of Tabriz is located near the Bazaar of Tabriz, The Constitution House of Tabriz, and Saint Mary Church.
