|The somewhat forbidding exterior of the northern eivan masks some of the greatest beauties of the mosque. Behind it lies the sanctuary of Taj Al-Mulk, while the inside contains some excellent Kufic inscriptions. The eivan is of considerable antiquity and the vertical section on the left concludes with the words "in the month of Muharram of the year 766" (= 1366 C.E.).
