Mosque at Shapur Jat. Located on the western outskirts of the village of Shapur Jat. Grid ref. G-11, Ill. 23.
Today a square domed building with an outer measurement of 11.7 m remains; this was originally the central prayer hall of the mosque. Remains of adjoining prayer rooms two bays deep are to be seen to the north and south. From remains on the northern and southern sides we know that there were side rooms and surrounding walls. The central prayer room has three mihrabs on the western side, and there appear to have been three small entrances surrounded by large arches in the eastern facade. This section however has collapsed and the arch is now supported by two modern pillars. There are two corridors leading out from the side prayer rooms. Period Ⅱ.
IOC:Ⅷ-4; ASI:Ⅲ-294.
