One can't miss the building: entering the city from the airport one has to drive near the shrine. In front of it: the red wells symbolising the blood of the many martyrs who lost their lives for their country. Inside the building: enormous, plenty of place for many thousands of believers and in the middle: the shrine. The main colour:... More

So much glitter, marble, space and...devotion. We went there at night watching people sleeping, praying and children playing. Knowing the costs for building and repair... Unbelievable

Apart from the shrine itself I admired the layout with shady trees and silent electric... More

Not knowing if we would be able to enter, we were welcome to come in after women donned chador out of respect for the holy shrine. All must pass through security check. For our visit we were allowed to bring in cameras and to take photographs. Beautiful building still under construction. Great for people watching.

It won't hurt if you visit this place once on your trip to Tehran. For Iranians like me, it's only a big mosque, but several travelers have told me that this place was kind of new and unique for them. Then perhaps it's a good idea to give it a try and spend about two to three hours to visit... More

This is a huge shrine and mosque in memory of Imam Khomeini. There is lots of parking and berths for people who camp there in tents. The staff where we left our shoes and bags were very friendly and helpful. Cameras are not allowed inside but you are allowed to take photos with your smart phone. Inside it is a... More
