This is the true blue mosque. Most of the people looking for it in Istanbul. But really blue mosque is here in Tabriz. Although an earthquake destroyed it but it is still wonderful to visit.

Entering the yard, you can see two domes in brick (from outside); can't see anything blue, a little disappointing.
The entrance portal is decorated mostly in blue with some calligraphy, beautiful, still, i would not say something extraordinary.
Go inside the mosque, under the main dome, a good, peaceful, feeling, it seems sky is very close to you. Go further to the tomb of ruler(the ruler and his wife or daughter, that's not very important) look back at the entrance of the tomb (or private mosque of the ruler); there are some parts of the blue mosaics survived from looting in the wars and some earthquakes; for a moment imagine there is not any damage, all parts of the walls and domes covered in blue mosaics and floor in bright marble; yes, extraordinary, beautiful, eastern, one thousand and one nights, yes, turquoise of Islamic world, even if we need some imagination to complete this picture.

A little damaged, but a great mosque. A lot of tiles on the walls and dome have fallen off, mainly due to the earthquake, but still this building is magnificent. Worth to see!

Highly recommend to visit this wonderful and amazing mosque.

The Blue Mosque is a historic mosque in Tabriz, Iran. According to Wikipedia; The mosque and some other public buildings were constructed in 1465 upon the order of Jahan Shah, the ruler of Kara Koyunlu.
The mosque was severely damaged in an earthquake in 1780.
The diverse Kufic, and Thuluth scripts, the arabesque patterns, and the choramatic compositions of these facades, were created by Nematollah-ben-Mohammad-ol-Bavab, the famous calligrapher. The walls inside and outside had been covered with mosaic tiles.

مسجد کبود یا مسجد جهانشاه از مسجدهای تاریخی تبریز مربوط به دوران حکمرانی قراقویونلوها در قرن نهم هجری است . در زلزله سال ۱۱۵۸ شمسی (۱۷۸۰ میلادی) آسیب فراوانی به مسجد وارد آمد و در اثر این زلزله گنبدهای مسجد فرو ریخت. مسجد کبود با تنوع و ظرافت کاشی‌کاری و انواع خطوط به‌کاررفته در آن و به ویژه به دلیل رنگ لاجوردی کاشی‌کاری‌های معرق آن به «فیروزه اسلام» شهرت یافته‌است. سبک معماری این بنا به شیوه آذری است. صحن بزرگ مسجد مربع شکل است که حوضی برای وضو در آن قرار داشت و شبستانهایی نیز جهت پناهگاه مستمندان، و درس خواندن در آن وجود داشته‌اند.
کاشی‌کاری‌های ایوان ورودی مسجد که با کاشی‌کاری‌های معرق تزئین شده‌است، کتیبه‌ای دارد به خط رقاع که به سال ۸۷۰ (قمری) نصب شده‌است.
از ستون‌های واقع در صحن اصلی مسجد راه‌پله‌هایی برای دسترسی به ایوان‌ها ناظر بر صحن اصلی وجود دارد. در پایه ستون‌های مسجد محفظه‌های کوچکی وجود دارند. گمان می‌شود از این محفظه‌ها برای جاکفشی نمازگزاران استفاده می‌شده‌است که امروزه سبک و معماری آن عوض شده است.

The mosque of Kabud or Jahanshah Mosque was built about 550 years ago by the order of the king's wife. This mosque is famous for its tiles which are very beautiful. The mosque was seriously damaged by an earthquake about 250 years ago but was rebuilt, and parts of it are still under construction.

Blue Mosque; one of the Iranian architectural masterpieces in Tabriz city. This building has been renowned for its various names, including a Goy mosque, the Shah Jahan Mosque, the mansion and the mosque of Mozaffarieh. Founder of Blue Mosque was Jahanshah that one of the kings of the Qaraqwinlu period, but the supervision of the construction of the mosque was under the control of his wife, Jan Baygom Khatoun. The remains of this monument are the date of the end of the mosque in 1466.
Unfortunately, this building was destroyed in the 1780's earthquake in Tabriz. The entire roof collapsed and destroyed all the walls, but the remains of this building are unique in their type and are nicknamed "tile" because of the tile and the combination of bricks, tiles, and colors. Turquoise is Islam.
In the old days, this building has been a collection of buildings such as school, mosque, khaneghah, library, etc. Unfortunately, nowadays there are none left, only a part of the mosque, which was also damaged and restored.

The blue mosque became one of the most famous buildings in that era and a masterpiece of Iranian decorative tile work. It is known as the Turquoise of Islam because of the blue tiles used in the decoration of both the interior and exterior of the mosque.

An old mosque with most of it destroyed during the Tabriz earthquake over 300 years ago. The 15% of the original mosque that remains is said to be one of the two buildings in Tabriz that managed to survive. Very beautiful tile work, and the guide explaining the history of the place brought it to life. It’s very beautiful and I would recommend it very much. They are rebuilding it but distinguishing old tiles from new. Overall beautiful place.
