About the Book:

Among the five prominent mosques built in the reign of Fath’ali shah Qâjâr, Emâm Khomeyni Mosque is a perfect example of the elegance of Persian architecture at its climax. It is considered one of the five royal mosques created by great masters of architecture during the relatively long duration of Fath’ali Shah’s rule. Emâm Khomeyni Mosque has witnessed several major events in different eras of the contemporary Iranian history, including the constitutionalists’ rally in 1905, and the assassination of the Iranian prime minister in 1951.

The book in hand is the 15th volume of a twenty-title series published as an output of Tehran Studies Project at Cultural Research Bureau. These books were designed to provide both authentic and interesting reading material on the historical, architectural and cultural aspects of Tehran’s prominent monuments and urban spaces. The series was recently translated into English for English-speakers willing to expand their knowledge about the history of the present Iranian capital.
