The Tekkieh Moaven is a significant religious monument in Kermanshah and one of the most important national memorials in Iran. Following the building’s destruction in the early twentieth century, it was rebuilt and furnished with exclusive tiles, the focal point of this publication. The tiles illustrate the fascinating world of art in the Persian empire and Islamic era and are distinguished by colorful illustrations featuring floral, calligraphic, and also figurative motifs. Author Hadi Seif weaves the recollections of the ancient guardian Sojdehpur into his narratives, contributing valuable insights into the evolutionary history of these impressive tiles. The first major English-language publication dedicated to this outstanding cultural monument.
