Tarikhaneh, which means "House of God", is one of the Damghan's ancient monuments which, based on the Department of Archeology, used to be a temple before the Arabs' dominance in Iran and was later changed to a mosque. Tarikhaneh Mosque is one of the most important monuments remained from early Islamic centuries in Iran. According to some books, it was built during the reign of the first Abbasid caliph, i.e. Saffah, in 132 AH and that of Harun al-Rashid in 170 AH. The reconstruction of the mosque was done in Century 2 AH according to Sassanid architecture style. Over centuries, Damghan's Tarikhaneh has been refurbished many times. A brick minaret was added to this monument in Seljuk period which is currently 26 meters high and its body is decorated with brickwork. In Turkish, Tarikhaneh means "House of God".
