Muqarnas is the term given to an architectural device unique to Islamic architecture. Its purpose is to provide a transition between, for example, a square base and a dome. Muqarnas is also frequently used to create a concave semi-vault above an entrance to a building or to provide a decorative cornice along the perimeters of a ceiling or beneath a balcony. It appeared in the early 12th century throughout the Islamic world; a frequent use was to overlay the transitional zone between domes and their supports. It reached its highest development in the 14th–15th century, when it became the usual decoration for door heads, niches, and the bracketing under cornices and minaret galleries. Different regions in the Islamic world have used different styles of construction techniques in their history.

  3. 3. Muqarnas is the Arabic word for stalactite vault, an architectural ornament developed around the middle of the 10th century in northeastern Iran and almost simultaneously, but apparently independently, in central North Africa. It involves three-dimensional architectural decorations composed of niche-like elements arranged in tiers. The two-dimensional projection of muqarnas vaults consists of a small variety of simple geometrical elements. Muqarnas – ornamente arhitectonice tipic islamice numite ş i stalactite sau faguri datorit ă felului î n care at â rn ă î n straturi suprapuse ş i sunt divizate î n alveole geometrice. Aceste muqarnas fac trecerea de la arcul fr â nt la planul orizontal al solului. Î ntr-o dimensiune simbolic ă aceste motive decorative reprezint ă , dup ă cum explic ă istoricul iranian modern Seyyed Hossein Nasr „cobor â rea l ă ca ş ului ceresc spre p ă m â nt“.
