Archaeological excavations indicate that this mosque was probably the most important religious center of the city before the Arabs dominated the city and used it as one of the fireplaces in the city of Isfahan. The discovery of a pillar, with the decorations of the Sassanid era, confirms the pre-Islamic monument in the northern area of the mosque.

There are controversy about the history of the changes in the mosque, but it seems that the construction of The Jameh Mosque was in the early centuries of the Hijri era and during the Abbasids, which was destroyed in the 3rd century AH.
