To enter this mosque, there is a portico that has a large open dome built over a podium. The carved entrance doors are equipped with stone lattices. It is a very beautiful entrance, opened from the top, rarely I have ever seen such an entrance before.  There are three arches made of stone mesh, which enhance its beauty.

To enter this mosque, besides the main portico entry, two smaller entrances are on both the north and south sides of the mosque. As you enter inside, there is a large open courtyard, two large towers of the mosque are seen in front. These two minarets are 30 meters high,
