Seyyed Mir Ahmad,one of Imam Reza,s 17 brothers,was hunted down and killed by the caliphate on this site in AD 835.His remains are housed at the glittering Aramgah-e-Shah-e cheragh.A mausoleum was first erected over the grave during the 12th century but most of what you see dates from the late-qajar period and the Islamic Republic ,Epantion is ongoing.The expaansive courtyard isĀ  a great place to sit and take in the bulbouse blue-tiled dome and dazzling gold-toppedĀ  minerate while didiscreetly bobserving the pious at what in one the holiest Shittee sights in Iran ..In the shrine itself ,countless minute mirror tilesreflect the passion within.
