The extraordinary beautiful Jam Karan Mosque is located 6 Km east of  Qom city. In 986 AD, a devout Muslim by the name of Hassan Ibn Muthlih had a mystical experience in which the Imam Al-Mahdi and the prophet Khizr appeared to him and directed him to organize the building of a mosque on the holy ground of Jam Karan. The mosque was built by Sheikh Afif Saleh Hassan Mosleh Jam Karani in 1006 and has since that time attracted vast numbers of pilgrims and tourists.
