This is a holy place near the Imam Khomeini International Airport and has hundreds of visitors at all times; please make sure that you do not carry any eatables / cigarettes etc since these are not allowed inside the Shrine

Huge complex completely covered with beautiful Persian carpets; not to be missed the humongous blue carpet. The volume of the structure is breathtaking.

It is a nice place and easily accessible by metro but the building is still under construction and not finished. It might be better to visit it when it is finished.
