From architectural point of view, it is one of the most important construct of Safavid time. although its tile works and mosaics are inferior to Sheikh Lotf Allah mosque, the gildings, the paintings and the engravings are far superior to any other building in Iran. the monumental portal leads to a domed octagonal vestibule. The entrance is decorated with gold and silver and the tile works of inside are outstanding. The dome and part of the walls are made from bright yellow bricks. The central yard is surrounded by student rooms on two levels and the beautiful garden with its plane trees adds to the beauty of the place.
