The Golestan Mosque

This building consists of a courtyard, a summer and winter bedchambers. Therefore in the past the courtyard of the Mosque had clay walls which have now seen major changes and they are now brick walls and floor is Mosaic.

The summer bedchamber is located to the Southwest side. To enter the summer bedchamber it is possible through a high head arch with pointed arches and plaster facades. The inside space of the summer bedchamber had columns, dome, high ceilings and thick walls, and there are windows on four sides, causing the air inside the yard in the summer not to be too hot. There are two small towers on the roof of the Mosque in local terms called ‘Sharafeh’ that have a large share of ventilating the yard. The bedchamber generally had two thick hexagonal columns, six half-columns and six skullcap domes to cover the yards space. The Altar of the bedchamber is a space which is embedded within the walls. It has a pointed arch and a depth of about 50 cm. The Winter Prayer Hall of the Mosque was built underground. The entrance to the yard is possible by a number of steps. The space of this bedchamber is wide with four columns which support the roof, unlike the summer bedchamber this yard low in height with short column that help to warm the yard in the winter. The Altar of this bedchamber is the same as in the summer bedchamber but with more depth at the corner of the yard is the Pulpit of the Mosque, which was built of brick and plaster. Entry to the courtyard from the street to the winter and summer yards is possible by climbing a few stairs. (Mr. Nasr Abadi. 2001)
According to an inscription inside the Mosque, this building had been repaired in 1947. (Mr. Farashi. 2005)
