Yazd is home to a distinctive style of mosque, with very tall decorative entrance gates topped with a pair of minarets. They’re perfect for navigating your way around the labyrinth of the old city, and were some of my favourite of the many mosques I visited across Iran.
Home to the tallest (48m) minarets in Iran, this may not be the largest mosque but is one of the most beautiful. The entrance gate is exquisite from the front, and almost completely plain from behind.
A great find was the Hazira Mosque, worth risking life and limb to cross a busy Iranian road to visit. Not as old as many in Yazd, and less immediately impressive, but inside were some of the most beautiful patterns I saw anywhere in Iran.
