Holy Shrine of Emam Khomeini, Tehran

(140+ reviews on the web)
Monument Religious Site
See the power of unity in grief at Holy Shrine of Emam Khomeini, a holy shrine built solely from financial gifts of the public and different organizations. The construction took time; 40 days after Imam Khomeini's death, only the burial chamber and grave itself existed. Admire the 8 m (26 ft) tall dome surrounded by four minarets which radiates modern dignity. The intricate stained-glass windows paint the burial chamber in different colors, contributing to the beauty of the building. Put Holy Shrine of Emam Khomeini and other Tehran attractions into our Tehran family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
