Arg-e-Alishah

Ark-e-Alishah Mosques

Arg  of Tabriz also known as Arg-e Alishah is the remains of an Ilkhanid era (1256–1335) structure, which is considered the symbol of the city and one of the tallest historical walls in the country. An earthquake devastated the complex 300 years ago. During the Constitutional Revolution, the forces of revolutionary leaders Sattar Khan (1866-1914) and Baqer Khan (1870-1911) took cover in the Arg of Tabriz from the cannon fire of Qajar King Mohammad Ali Shah (1972-1924). The structure today stands 28 meters high, and is still used as part of a space for holding Friday prayers.
