Emam Hassan Mosque

Blue and turquoise color are the most common colors used in our traditional religous architecture related to Islam religion. Most of the historical mosques in Iran, which belongs to 200 to 700 years ago, are colored with blue, turquoise and sometimes light green, dark blue and white. This is Emam Hassan Mosque which is not an old mosque. It has been built not more than 5 years ago but it is clear that it was tried to follow the Persian-Islamic traditional architecture in desgning and building this beautiful structure. Now it is one of the most prestigous mosques in Mashhad.

Location: Hashemieh Boulevard, Vakil Abad Highway, Mashhad
