Among Iranian historical And Cultural works, mosques are most important items. When you enter KASHAN, and ask about its cultural and historical monuments, you'll hear the name of the AGHA BOZORG mosque. MASTER Haji SHABAN, WAS ITS ARCHITECT. UPON HIS ORDER, all parts of mosque WAS built by brick. HAJ SHABAN installed many valuable inscriptions on and around the yard. Calligraphy works were done by distinguished masters of KASHAN like Mohammad Ibrahim, Mohamed Hossein and Syed SADEGH KASHANI. Painting works were handed over to master Mohammad BAGHER GHAMSARI. On two sides of mosque`s door, two stony platforms were constructed, according to usual habit in QAJAR period. Plaster and suspended paintings decorated with brick tiles, arouse the admiration of everyone. Between Two Corridors, Two summer and winter Bedchambers are made. AGHA BOZORG Mosque is open from all four sides, so the cool air, makes the hot summer of Kashan, tolerable for prayers. 8 strong and thick columns of 17-meters have kept the doom tightly, and created under it, a large square space of 28 into 30 meters. Mosque was built so tightly that the earthquake of 1192 HIJRI in Kashan, did not hurt the mosque. Double-layer dome of mosque is another masterpiece of HAJ SHABAN. Both large and small domes with a distance of 5 meters from each other, but quite similar, are overlapping. The two mosaic tile minarets, like two earrings, have given it, more beauty.
