Description

This freestanding tomb tower was built for an Alid shaykh and descendant of the fifth imam who died in 1325. The tilework seen here is part of the “excessive” restoration the building underwent in 1950 , but the charm of the building lies in its graceful proportions of the blind arcading on the exterior, showing the “elegance and grace of Ilkhanid architecture at its prime.” - SK
