  The present paper intends to answer the ambiguities which are proposed about the form originality of Tabriz Blue Mosque. The reasons for uncertainties about the form originality and the architectural method of this building are related to its planning method and special volumetric composition that have led it to be distinguished from other architectural types of mosques in Iran, in a way that, from the viewpoint of form pedigree no similar building can be found before or after it that indicates the logical sequence of a special architectural experience. So, in the architectural background of Iranian mosque, the idea used in architectural creation of Tabriz Blue Mosque is such a single star that shone only once and disappeared. Based on what is mentioned, the present paper intends to answer the following questions: A) In which country’s architectural culture the architectural identity of Tabriz Blue Mosque is rooted? B) If the volumetric composition of this building is retrieved from the imported architectural patterns, why does its image manifest Iranian architectural elements? C) How and to what extent the final development of this architectural monument is influenced by cultural atmosphere of the Tabriz of ninth century? From the viewpoint of nature and content of discussion, this paper has been written in a descriptive-analytical method and in the stage of comparative study with other architectural models, the deductive method of investigation is also utilized. It can be inferred that although the Blue Mosque building belongs to some Ottoman architectural monuments from the form point of view, the Iranian architects constructing it who were artists from the territory using Azeri method of Iranian architecture, by applying their indigenous thought and traditional techniques, intermingle the imported architectural form of this mosque with Iranian architectural culture in a way that the final product becomes a part of Iranian architectural discourse.
