Here's more of the oldest city of the Capital. This part is much newer than some of the other parts I talked about in the last post. In the picture below is the Jamali Kamali Mosque and Tomb. The mosque was built much later - in 1528 in honor of a sufi saint. It's crazy that I never knew this existed until this past week! I live in such a cool city!!!
As we started to walk towards it, a man told us it was locked up. We were a little sad until he said he had the key and would let us in :) We were so glad he did! When he first let us in, this was the first thing I saw... do you see that big be hive?? Crazy!
They use white marble, black marble and sandstone in this mosque. It looks really neat!
There were a lot of interesting designs and window areas in this mosque.
The outside wall was really neat too.
This is the inside of the mosque.
I love all the old blue tile. It's so neat! It's over 500 years old! crazy!
This is inside the tomb of Jamali Kamali. Some of it is made up of tiles and the other parts are designs made out of plaster and painted.
Here are some of the plaster designs - really cool!
And another picture - I thought it was really neat :)
It was definitely a really neat new area! We'll definitely take another trip back there :)
