  • 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 »
  • Regenerative pride of a nation Nader Shah Museum is an important and attractive places in several ways. One unique architecture and beautiful building. The second attraction is the beautiful sculpture...  more »
  • This is a scandal, to be so mediocre attraction claimed 150.000 IRR. Do not know what a miracle this tomb has such a high rating. In the middle of nothing. I repeat: in the middle is not anything interesting. Give you peace of mind, do not go there, go for ice cream or coffee. Better to put into practice their own money. I feel ripped off after visiting this place.

  • 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
