Swastika Jamé Mosque

Jamé Mosque is a mosque in Isfahan (Eşfahān), Iran and is the result of continual construction, reconstruction, additions and renovations on the site from around 771 to the end of the 20th century. Jamé stems from the Arabic root word Jam, signifying the place of gathering.

This is one of the oldest mosques still standing in Iran, and it was built in the four-iwan architectural style, placing four gates face to face. An iwan is a vaulted open room. The qibla iwan on the southern side of the mosque was vaulted with muqarnas during the thirteen hundreds. Muqarnas are niche-like cells.
