Today this gorgeous mosque is still in use under protection by Nasir al Mulk's Endowment Foundation. Built in late 19th century, not very new and not very old, it is a celebration of both classic and modern times embedded in Islamic heritage. Speaking of this heritage, it has roots in Islamic art, architecture, tile making, geometry, patterns and other arts that flourished in the Golden Age of Islam. For example the “New Discoveries in the Islamic Complex of Mathematics, Architecture and Art” article, written by the president of FSTC, Professor Salim Al-Hassani, shows a very interesting link with patterns on the mosques and a sophisticated geometry, where art enterwined with science.

In it he gave 46 recipes for producing coloured glass and described the technique of cutting glass into artificial gemstones.
