The Blue Mosque in Tabriz was built on the order of the Kara Koyunlu ruler Jahan Shah (1397-1467). The mosque was damaged in a 1779 earthquake. Today, only the entrance iwan of this mosque, which was once known as the ‘Turquoise of the World of Islam’ remains standing. Some of the mosque’s Kufic and Thulth inscriptions and its arabesque decorations are still visible today and tell of its glorious past.
