Masjed-e Jāmé of Isfahan 

Masjed-e Jame of Esfahan is one of the largest mosque still standing in the heart of Iran, Isfahan. The Jame mosque is the result of continual construction, additions and renovations on the site from around 771 to the end of the 20th century, however it was firstly established at the 8th century, but it burnt down and was rebuilt again in the 11th century and went through remodeling many times. the final result has rooms with different architectural styles, so the mosque truly represents a condensed history of the Iranian architecture, culture and life style.

The main changes occurred during the Seljuq dynasty, while two brick domed chambers were constructed. The south dome was built to house the mihrab in 1086–87 by Nizam al-Mulk, the famous minister of Malik Shah, and was larger than any other domes. The north dome was constructed a year later by Nizam al-Mulk's rival Taj al-Mulk.

Further additions and modifications applied incorporating elements from the Monghols, Muzzafarids, Timurids and Safavids, regarding to needs of the space, political issues, religious developments, and changes in tast. For instance Safavid intervention was largely decorative, with the addition of minarets, glazed tilework, and minarets flanking the south iwan.
