Geographical location of Soukhteh Chenar Mosque

It is located in the corner of Soukhteh Chenar Alley, Naderi Street, the historical texture of the city, Qazvin Province, Iran.

History and culture of Soukhteh Chenar Mosque

It was named Soukhteh Chenar (burnt plane tree) since there’s been a burnt plane tree in the mosque’s yard that people used as a wishing well and believed that if they tell their wishes to the tree, God would hear them so the wish would be granted. Unfortunately, because of the city structures the tree was removed.

It is also known as Mosa Reza Mosque and it has commonly been assumed that in the year 817 AD, Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha (Reza) stayed in Dawud b. Sulayman al-Ghazi house when traveling through Qazvin on his way to Merv. Dawud b. Sulayman al-Ghazi was a distinguished person back then and was buried in his own house after his death. So later on people turned his house into a mosque and named it after the eighth Shia Imam, Reza.

Architecture of Soukhteh Chenar Mosque

The structure is built in one floor 18x13 which consists of two parts: “old” and “new”.  It has a brick façade and two northern and southern gates, above which are designed with captivating tiled arches. There are also four false arches inside the mosque that have added to its beauty. Mihrab (niche) on the south part is adorned with exquisite brand new tile work while other parts of the building are built of stone, brick, plaster, and mosaic.
