• Courtyards or Sahn

      After passing the sanctuaries, pilgrims need to pass the open-air courtyards or Sahn. There are nine courtyards in the Holy Shrine, each a testament to the era in which they were built and the fine craftsmanship of ancient Iran. These stunning open-aired courtyards serve as gathering places for a variety of religious ceremonies and programs and hold a variety of exceptional architectural features. Since Holy Shrine is ever increasing, the number of courtyards may also increase later in the future as well.

      What to look for: exquisite patterned mirror work, tile work with an array of designs and rich colors, calligraphic inscriptions, and muqarnas.
