The historic city of Kashan holds at its heart the superb building of Aqabozorg Mosque and Seminary, a multipurpose center offering educational and religious programs. This monument, which is among the most significant buildings of the previous century, has remained untouched and committed to its religious and educational responsibilities since the Qajar period. The construction of this building follows the traditional Persian architectural style. The large courtyard of this mosque is constructed in two stories and is surrounded by special corridors called Taromi, which connect different sections to each other. Various inscriptions containing verses from the Holy Quran, which date back to the Qajar period, could be found in this building.
This wonderful complex was founded by a person named Haji Mohammad Taqi known as Khanban in order to host congregational prayers and theology teaching sessions led by Haji Molla Mehdi Neraqi II known as Aqabozorg.
