The mosque has been built outside the city of Tabriz several times bigger than its current size, including a collection of library, school, bath and mosque on the orders of Abu al-Muzaffar Jahanshah of the QaraQoyunlu dynasty. That is why it is also called Mozaffariyeh. As the other monuments,this building was not protected from natural disasters, and in the earthquake of 1193, it collapsed all its splendor, and for about 150 years later it remained in ruins until it became nationalized in 1310 and the grand architect of Azerbaijan, ostad Rezamemar has restored its masters, and now the Blue Mosque, or the Mozaffairyeh complex is an expression of the combination of Islamic and Iranian art and architecture, and it has been globalized. The special architecture of a mixture of brick and tile, outstanding tilework, design of motifs and other elements has ed the place to a great extent and nobody else has been able to create an example in the whole world, and it has known as the Turquoise of Islam. Especially since turquoise and azure tiles are the darkest type of turquoise and therefore it is called blue mosque. In short, it is a wonderful place to be interested in Iranian art and architecture, especially in the 8th century AH. Because the best architects, tile installer and artists have left a lasting impression that they have written in the description: The time is passing, but such a building will not be seen. The writings on the inscriptions, written by well-known and distinguished calligraphers of Azerbaijan, have written that in the inscription of the mosque, beside the name of the Mozaffariyeh mansion, you can also see the name of Nematullah, the Calligrapher. The mosque has two narrow minarets, two small and large seraglio, the first of which is the royal tomb, where the tomb of Jahanshah and his wife are located inside the mirage (but with empty graves), and the other is the main courtyard of the mosque. Porches, domes, marble stones, mosaic tiles, such as geometric nodes, various inscriptions, is a collection of fantastic beauty of ancient architecture in front of the eyes of any viewer who makes it obligatory to visit.
