Holy Shrine of Emam Khomeini, Tehran

(3.2/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The TA rating system failed here! "Excellent" for the construction workers, who have created this? "Very good" for the architects design? "Satisfactory" for the message that emanates from this building? "Flawed" because of the superlatives? "Insufficient" due to the profligate waste of money? The complex is not yet done, he is a hotel with postal, banking, fast-food restaurants etc included. The gigantic courtyard can be covered with plan - a 7stellige crowd of people had gathered at the recent funeral of Rafsanjani there. The actual mausoleum is gigantic. Instinctively, one thinks of the Mao mausoleum in Beijing to that of Ho Chi Min in Hanoi or Kim Il-Sung in Pyongyang (Kumsusan Palace). Since the Iranians can easily keep... and Lenin in Moscow, however, has a modest cottage. This is not a burial site not only, but also ideological reference point, such as the Islam in the theocracy of Iran Yes just religion, but also state ideology. The followers are committed here - from the upper speaker stands. You reach the shrine through a security gate, separated by gender. The camera checks... maybe he is yes no one, women are modestly trimmed under the strict eye of male assessors of women. No hair to be seen. Now, what can we say summarized this structure: necessarily visit and: what ' an inappropriate, fallen from the period Gigantomomie, welch' a hubris to the history! PS: And visit the fully cultured - and dissuade children amusement establishment on the ground floor of the hotel wing. Here the Mickey mice of the American Satan laughing you receive. What a joke.
