"Arg -e- Tabriz"

Masjide Ali shah or Arg e Alishah is the impressive reminder of a great and imposing building in Tabriz. It belongs to the 8th century A.H.(14th century A.D.) When it was built by Taj al-din Alishah of Tabriz, the famous minister of the Mogul Khan, Ghazan Khan. The great structure has gradually fallen into ruins and what remains of it today consists only of parts of its strong and thick walls, the rest having completely disappeared. The construction of Arg must have taken place between the Hijrah years 716 and 736.(1316 and 1335 A.D.).
