A mosque under repairing

This is an old Mosque near Imam Reza holy shrine that I am not sure about its name.As you see It is surrounded by fences because of some repairing.So I could not take better shots and get information about it.
Tile works are the most important characteristic of Islamic architecture in Iran.Once time I visited the big Tile Factory of Astan-Qods-e-Razavi in Mashhad and I saw how much it is difficult to produce such art works.The guide told me "we need 10 workers in a day to produce just 1 meter of these tiles .
As a Iranian girl , I really proud of this old unique art!
