  • Its a great place to visit and you don't have to be there in special season . Its not been well cared as it should though its definitely worth seeing 
  • The place is the grave of a persian king. Who's name was nader. And there's a statue of the man on a horse. The whole site is located by the main street of shohada and its so close to the Holy shrine ...  more »

  • This place is iconic for being the burial of a true Persian king who lead Iran into glory and expansion. His life was mixed with lots of drama and exciting stories that you can learn about them at this site. If you love history, you are going to like it.
  • The tomb is being repaired but they are still charging 20,000 toman, which is completely insane.
  • شهریار توانای ایران
  • باغ و موزه بسیار زیبایی است
  • حديقه ومتحف مكان جميل لتنزه وتصوير
