  • نگین ایران زمین فخر مملکت برکت دنیا و آخرت امام غریبی که آشنای همه است و از هر جا که بیایی در کنارش احساس آرامش و امنیت میکنی. در باب این مکان چه میتوان گفت که گفتنی نیست و باید رفت و دید و از دنیای معرفت و کرمش چشید . مطمئناً بالاترین انرژی مثبت توی ایران عزیز رو ، این مکان مقدس و متبرک داره . و ما هر چه در ایران داریم به برکت وجود این امام معصموم است. زایرین بسیاری از داخل و خارج کشور به این مکان مشرف میشوند. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى عَلِيِّ بْنِ مُوسَى الرِّضَا الْمُرْتَضَى الْإِمَامِ التَّقِيِّ النَّقِيِ‏..
  • Masha Allah this place is not less than a beautiful heaven. This is very important and very holy place for Shi'a around world. The architecture of entire tombs and holy shrine is a great example of Islamic culture.
  • One of most beautiful religious places in Iran. I spent best moments there and I suggest visiting this place to everything.
  • A place for Muslim people that make them feeling Pease and happiness its a religious place in east of Iran...! And people of closer country can go there Like Iraqis and Pakistanis and afghan people , you can see there every day!
  • The experience of this place is divine. One will forget himself after coming to this place. The architecture and design of the entire tomb Complex is majestic and artistic. The big open lawns or the open areas are enough to gather 1000s of people in the area. The total complex is so big that there are around 6 gates of the entry into the shrine complex. The tomb place is beautifully designed and well maintained. The golden colour of the tomb also creates a pleasant experience for the visitors. The flooring marble all around the complex is such that it is very cold during all the time of the year. The complex has multipurpose halls for library, study areas, lecture halls, museum and art and handicraft areas. It also has a huge canteen where everyday the zayereeens are offered free food after the completion of their ziyarat.
