  • We visited the shrine in the evening and were overwhelmed. It occurs after the safety precautions (men and women separate) on the large interior space believed it hardly in what huge investment is. A splendour of the buildings and the lights with the wonderful architecture. Thousands of people pay tribute to and pray for the Imam. A visit worth and also should not be forgotten when you're already in this region of Iran.
