    In addition to the head, courtyard, porch and nave, you must mention the brick tower of the mosque, which is famous for the Seljuk tower, and is similar to the other brick towers that have survived from the Seljuk era in other parts of Iran. The tower is located in the north-east of the mosque and its upper part, leaving only 6 meters from it.
    The entrance to the head of the head is in Mogharnas, and at the bottom there is also a prominent Cartagena. The border of the arc is decorated with the plaster of the knot design.
    In the survey of the style of the mosque of Malek, the entrance door of the Malek Mosque is now the northern door. The old door was a wooden low-altitude mosque, and the philosophy behind the height of this door of the old zurkhaneh was that people would bend at the entrance to the mosque and then enter. After passing through the north entrance, we arrive at a fairly high ceiling with a view of the brickwork being considered.
