The Mianchal Mosque is part of the Historic old Bazaar of Kashan. It has been remodeled and revised over the years but still maintaining a Between Qibla which must have originated from the first mosque on this site. The Mianchal School was built in the Safavis era. There is an entrance to the Souq near the mosque. It contains two yards and chambers around it and a big porch which is built on the school’s cistern. Originally the mosque stood alone, near an open air market. Eventually the market became a bazaar and later it was combined with other bazaars to create a very large bazaar which incorporated the mosque and madrasa within it.
