Mashhad

3.9
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. Mashhad is in Razavi Khorasan Province. Use our Iran online attractions planner to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Mashhad.
