The "Khorasani style" (Persian: شیوه معماری خراسانی‎‎) is a style (sabk) of architecture when categorizing Iranian architecture development in history. It is the first style of architecture appearing after the Conquest of Persia, but is highly influenced by pre-Islamic designs.[1] Landmarks of this style appear in the late 7th century, and span through the end of the 10th century CE.[2]

Examples of this style are Mosque of Nain, Tarikhaneh-i Damghan, and Jame mosque of Isfahan
