Nayin is a city and the capital of Nayin County, Isfahan Province. The Jameh Mosque of Nayin ( Masjid -e- Jameh ) is the grand, congregational mosque ( Jameh ). It is one of the earliest remaining mosques in Iran dating back to the 9th century. Although the mosque is one of the oldest in Iran, it is still in use and is protected by Iran's Cultural Heritage Organization. The interiors however are Seljuki in brick craftsmanship, and therefore allude to the 11th century. The initial construction of Jameh Mosque dates back to the 8th century A.D, but the complex has been constructed periodically. This is one of the oldest mosques in Iran, with features including magnificent plaster working over the niche, marvelous brick work around the yard, and a basement which some say used to be a fire temple before the mosque was built here.
