Religious Architecture in Iran: Shrines and Tombs
stucco work on the inside was excellent.
This is the tomb of Seyed Roknaddin Mohammed Qazi, a local Islamic notable. It was not unusual for wealthy citizens to build what are called imamzadeh, which refers both to a descendant of an imam and to the place where he is buried. Unfortunately we only saw this tomb in passing. The tile work on the dome was just lovely, in spite of the electrical wires obscuring the view.
