Photographer's Note

A major work which has been done in the recent years was to uncover very attractive plasterwork and brickwork on the body of the western courtyard which carry inscriptions in Kufic script and, unfortunately, had been buried under various layers of plaster and brick knowingly or unknowingly. The father of Malek Touran Shah, who ruled Kerman circa 433 AH, also built another mosque in the city which has been destroyed in the course of time. The tomb of Malek Touran Shah has been located somewhere around the mosque and “Shah Adel” neighborhood has been named after the Seljuq king. ( كرمان - مسجد ملك يا مسجد امام )
