The Aq-Quiunlu and Qara-Quiunlu clans, who were distinguished by their banners bearing respectively black and white sheep had been at constant warfare with one another during the Timurid period. The predominantly Sunni Aq-Quiunlu supported Timurlane while the Qara-Quiunlu provided an effective resistance, eventually taking Isfahan in 1453. The Darb-e-Imam dates from the period when the Quiunlus ruled Isfahan as does the series of panels within the main eivan of the Friday mosque.
