Razi style

The "Razi style" (شیوه معماری رازی) is a style (sabk) of architecture when categorizing Iranian architecture development in history.[1][2]

The Dictionary of Traditional Iranian Architecture defines the Razi Style as:[3]

"A style of architecture dating from the 11th century to the Mongol invasion period, which includes the methods and devices of The Samanids, Ghaznavids, and Seljukids."


Examples of this style are Tomb of Isma'il of Samanid, Gonbad-e Qabus, Kharaqan towers.
