856 Damghan earthquake
The 856 Damghan Earthquake or the 856 Qumis earthquake occurred on 22 December, 856 AD. The earthquake had an estimated magnitude of 7.9, and a maximum intensity of X (intense) on the Mercalli intensity scale. The meizoseismal area (area of maximum damage) extended for about 350 kilometres along the southern edge of the eastern Alborz mountains of present-day Iran including parts of Tabaristan and Gorgan.
The Tarikhaneh Temple, also called the Tarikhaneh Mosque, is a Sassanid-era monument located on the southern limit of the present day city of Damghan, Iran. This structure was initially used as a Zoroastrian Fire Temple during the Sassanid period, however, after the fall of the Sassanid Empire it was rebuilt and converted into a mosque in the 8th century. The monument is, thus, known as the oldest mosque in Iran.
