Mashhad (Persian: مشهد, literally the place of martyrdom) is one of the largest cities in Iran and one of the holiest cities in the Shia world. It is located 850 kilometres (530 mi) east of Tehran, at the center of the Razavi Khorasan Province close to the borders of Afghanistan and Turkmenistan. Now Mashhad is notably known as the resting place of the Imam Reza. A shrine was later built there to commemorate the Imam, which in turn gave rise to increasing demographic development.

 

Imām Rezā shrine (Persian: حرم امام رضا) in Mashhad, Iran is a complex which contains the mausoleum of Imām Ridhā, the eighth Imām of Twelver Shi'ites. Also contained within the complex include: the Goharshad Mosque, a museum, a library, four seminaries, a cemetery, the Razavi University of Islamic Sciences, a dining hall for pilgrims, vast prayer halls, and other buildings. This complex is the center of tourism in Iran, visited by 15 to 20 million pilgrims every year. The shrine itself covers an area of 267,079m2 while the seven courtyards which surround it cover an area of 331,578m2 - totaling 598,657 m2 (6,443,890 sq ft)

 

No special effect or filter used to create those beautiful stars. Just long exposure taken by zoom lens and strong lights on the top of the minarets. Capturing photo/view like this might not be as straight forward as it might seem. First you have to find the right elevated position with the right view, then you need to get permission to actually get there and at last not least, you need to be there at the right time. Journey to get this photo was more complicated than I have initially anticipated, Iran might not always be the most open place to let you go to any roof to take photos (particularly around such a Holy shrine) and we have been refused from several hotels where we tried to get permission, however if you try enough times on several different places you might get what you wanted at the end. This shot was captured from one of the hotel roofs where we made agreement a day before that we will come there for morning blue hour to capture this place under these amazing colors. So yet again, another 4am wake up call to get result like this.

GHADAMGAH is a village which is located on the way from Mashhad to neyshabour. What makes this ancient and beautiful village important for

Siiat Muslims is that there is a pair of foot prints on a piece of stone which

they believe it belongs to Imam Reza (the eighth religious leader after

Mohammad the prophet).

 

I've uploaded some images from this village which mainly are added

to Forgotten Land set.

 

Meanwhile I'm going to upload some shots of that part of the village

which attracts too many pilgrims and visitors not only from other cities

of Iran but pilgrims from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Arabian countries.

One year ago I was in Iran. After a week travelling to many wonderful and beautiful places together with my collueges from University I visited Mashhad on my own.

I didnt know, what to expect from the city of the holy shrine of Imam Reza - would the let me inside, would it be allowed to visit the shrine itself? I my dreams I couldnt even imagine if I would be allowed to take pictures. After all I was warned by many collueges and also Iranian friends that I - as not being a muslim - might be refused entry...

 

Now, a year later, this visit is one of my most vibrant memories. I visited the holy shrine three times and spent countless hours watching, admiring, wondering. I was warmly welcomed by all, the guards and pilgrims. As a non muslim I was truly surprised how I was taken into this experience by the shiite pilgrims visiting at the same time as me. I am also thankful for the opportunity to take some pictures (some even suggested me buying a small tripod, which I of course did and I used it for some photos which turned out to be wonderful).

 

There are indeed not many occasions in the world which can give you the feeling you are witnessing something special - seeing the pilgrims in the holy shrine of Imam Reza is certainly one of them.

 

On one of my visits I was accompanied by an Iranian flickr friend, who introduced me in the wonderful architecture and many aspects of past and modern culture in today's Iran. To him and to Soudeh I dedicate this photograph and many thanks.

 

As I know that photographing in the shrine is usually strictly prohibited I will only post this single photograph - but I strongly recommend everyone to visit Iran and have a look by yourself.
