The Jamé Atiq Mosque is also known as the Masjid-i Jami and is located in the centre of the town of Qazvin. Its origins date back to the 9th century when the first mosque was constructed on the site but it is believed to have been constructed on top of an earlier Zoroastrian fire temple. It is a classical four-sided courtyard mosque with four iwans laid out around a central courtyard. The architecture reflects a wide range of periods from 10th Century Seljuk in the South iwan, Safavid style in the Eastern on and 18th century Qajar in the West.
Entrance is free and the mosque is open 7 days a week.
