It is located on the Southeast of Damghan and it is one of the most important monuments, which is remained from the primeval Islamic centuries in Iran. It dates back to the near the end of The 2nd centhury of Hegira. According to some historical book it had built on the first Abbasid vicar “Saffah” era, (132 Hegira) and another Abbasid vicar “Haron-Al-Rashid” (170 Hegira). Its name consists of two parts: “Tari”&”Khane”. “Tari” is a Turkish word wich means “GOD” and “Khaneh” is a persian word,which means, “HOME”. Mosque’s plan consists of a squared yard that is directed to “Kiblan”, a big hall with several columns and in the other three positions are rows of proches. The big hall has 7 vertical outfalls, and 3 horizontal  outfalls. The memeddle outfall is the widest and highest outfall and there is the “Alter” of misque. According to some narrations this mosque style is Arabic style but its structural style is a copied of Sassanid traditional style. According to the current documents& evidences the mosque’s plan is completely traditional even related to before Islamic era because its samples are seen in “Damghan Sassanid Palace”& “Firooz Abad Place” in Fars province. The arcs wich used in Tarikhaneh are “Bercu” style that are not recent, but some of their samples are seen in “Haft Tappeh” of  “Shoosh”. The zigzag arce in one of its directions and various domes which are built over the columns are not related to the basic structure and had made in futre era. This mosque in the several years had some riders buildings, whichare destroyed.
