Abstract: 

This paper attempts to identify the thoughts and the infrastructure of thinking in architects of Islamic-Iranian mosques to study the role of Qebla in the architecture of mosques in city of Ilam. Aim of the research is discovering the hidden aspects of Qibla and the importance of traditional architecture in attention to "the Qibla direction" in design of Islamic-Iranian mosques. So it is a lesson for contemporary architects of Ilam to correct the current process in design and not to forget the attention to Qibla in the architecture of mosques. Hypothesis of this research is the difference between the contemporary and traditional mosques in attention on Qibla direction. This is a historic research. In this research, 21 mosques of this city are studied and analyzed in positioning, geometry, the arrangement of interior spaces and the direction of entrance to Qibla. Analysis of the history of traditional mosques and recognition of Qibla in successful examples of these mosques is an introduction to analyze the theoretic differences between Ilam architects. The study shows that there is not enough attention to Qibla direction in the contemporary design of Ilam mosques. So the sanctity, spirituality and basic identity of these mosques are missed.
