Sangan Mosque 2
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Sangan Congregation Mosque - Persian : مسجد جامع سنگان|
is located in Sangan 19 km southeast of Khawaf. At first the mosque had owned two porticoes. The Qebleh portico is facing the west which proves that it has followed Hanafi doctrines. Another portico had been standing opposite the qebleh portico to the east which has been destroyed by earthquake and a Shabestan (nocturnal place of rest) has been built in its place. But the remains of the portico roof can be seen on the wall of the Shabestan. What is interesting in this mosque is that the earthquake has bent the columns of the Qebleh portico so that the distance between the columns at the base is shorter than that under the ceiling. Studies indicate that most probably the Sangan Mosque was built in 12'th Century A.D.
