In the mystic morning light

This shot was taken at Fatimah al-Ma'sūmah Shrine in Qom, Iran


The shrine of Fatema Mæ'sume (sister of Imām ʻAlī ibn-Mūsā Riđā) is located in Qom which is considered by Shia Muslims to be the second most sacred city in Iran after Mashhad. Much of the shrine complex was first built by Shah Abbas I in the early 17th century. The shrine has attracted to itself dozens of seminaries and religious schools. The shrine is also depicted on the reverse of the Iranian 50 rials coin, issued since 2004
