The simple and elegant construction of the interior of the prayer chamber provides a further contrast of style with the larger, older one on the other side of the mosque. The architect has relied on the use of golden section here as heavily as on the outside of the building. The picture shows one corner of the chamber which emphasises the traditional chahar taq style of construction and also provides an excellent example of the tri-lobed squinch which increased in popularity at this time.

Clicking on the Design button will enable you to see the elaborate double golden section which has been used to construct this part of the mosque.
