Tarikhaneh Temple

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.
