  • Best place anyone can ever go, I really mean this. Either you are depressed or you are super happy this is the place to go and connect with God. It is the best feeling when you sit on the ground in the shrine
  • very great magnificent shirne in this world..by its beauty and infalibale imam of irfani shiite..
  • The holiest place in IRAN and Mashhad, and one of the holiest places on earth for Shiites. Considered as one of 7 cities of love. Its spirituality along with its fabulous, fantastic architecture is definitely one of the MUST sees when you go to Mashhad. Just imagine that 30 million people go to Mashhad only for the sake of Imam Reza Holy shrine.
  • It's a must see. The atmosphere is other-worldly.
  • One Of The Best Place For Everyone.
