Sacred & Religious Sites · Historic Sites · Scenic Walking Areas
Capital of the Razavi Khorosan Province, Mashhad holds a reputation as one of the holiest cities in Iran. Purportedly the final resting place of Islam's eighth Imam, after he was poisoned in 817 CE, Mashhad is home to one of the country's holiest shrines that's visited by millions of pilgrims annually. A relatively new bus system provides you with reliable transport during Mashhad sightseeing; it can take you from the mausoleums, mosques, and shrine complex, to bustling bazaars and vibrant restaurants. Both female and male visitors must adhere to the city's strict dress code. In the build up to your vacation in Mashhad, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Iran journey website.
