This is the south eivan, one of four giving on to the main courtyard of the Jameh (Friday) Mosque in Isfahan, Iran. This eivan and its minarets date from the 14th century Mongol era. However, the dome visible behind it formed part of the original mosque on this site which was built by the Seljuks in the 11th century. The two storey porches, which go all the way round the mosque's main courtyard, were constructed in the late 15th century.
