The blue mosque of Tabriz was built upon the order of Jahanshah, a ruler of qara-Qoyunloo dynasty and was completed in 1465 A.D. In the southern part had been built the royal mausoleum. The span of that are faced with high marble slabs on wich verses from Qoran, are engraved in thulth script on a background of fine arabesques. Violent earthquakes have wiped out most of the historic monuments of Tabriz. One important monument that has survived these earthquakes is the Blue Mosque of Tabriz (Göy-Mæčid). The roof of mausoleum and main dome chamber of the mosque collapsed during an earthquake in 1779-80 A.D. and was rebuilt in 1973, thanks the efforts of the late master Reza Memaran Benam, a famous architect from Tabriz.
