Wooden Mosque 1/2 (Interior)


n outskirts of the city of Neyshabour, there is a touristy village named as Wooden Village in which every building including a museum, a mosque, a library, some shops and some houses are completely made from wood, considering no forest nearby.
Among the buildings in the village, there is a wooden mosque, primarily built in 1973 with clay walls and wooden roof and rebuilt in complete wood by deploying modern methods in present form in 1999, after destruction.
The mosque is in the form of an inverted boat, consists of a 200 square meters hall and two 13m tall minarets, each weighing 4 tones. In total 40 metric tons of wood are employed in the mosque; it is so designed to withstand against up to 8 Richter scale earthquakes.
