Shafei Jame Mosque: A Beautiful Mosque Inside Kermanshah Bazaar

Built by a couple of Sunni benefactors, the mosque is in some ways inspired by Turkish styles in mosques. Launched in 1945, the religious attraction has an adorable status in the country as the majority Shiite Muslims respect Sunnis and other divine religions.

Friday prayers are held in the mosque and Sunni brothers and sisters gather around to share their social, and cultural ideas after prayers.

The beautiful mosque highlights elegant architecture typical of Islamic mosques. The intricate arches and pillars catch the eyes at first sight.

The mosque also feature delicate stucco works embellished with verses of the holy Quran. All over the bright main quarter where prayers are held you can see arched windows which let in the sunlight during the day. There are finely-built minarets as well.
