Holy Shrine of Emam Khomeini, Tehran

3.2
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.
