The mausoleum complexes constitute a specific part of Iranian architecture in Islamic period.
Burial of a great religious or political man was the fundamental base of formation of such complexes
and the other supplementary buildings such as mosque, school, Monastery, etc. were added
gradually to them in the next periods. In Ilkhani period which has been one of the significant
periods of the Islamic architecture of Iran, the process of building tomb complexes developed
more than ever. Baba Abdullah complex is one of the Ilkhani buildings in the town of Nain that
new dimensions and information about the variety and function and its developing periods have
been discovered through recent interventions and restorations. In this article which is based on
descriptive- analytical method and library sources and field studies, the stylistic characteristics
and development processes and architectural changes of the Baba Abdullah complex have been
investigated and discussed. One of the results of the study is to determine the elementary base of
the complex which is a single and domed tomb that the mosque was built next to it in the next periods.
So the Baba Abdullah tomb is one of the developed tomb buildings that the gradual process
of intervention in it has continued from Ilkhani period till now.
