Imam Khomeini Shrine
The mausoleum of Imam Khomeini (RA), the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran is situated in the south of Tehran city. There are four towers in four sides of the mausoleum which are 91 m. in height in a memorandum of Imam Khomeini’s age.
Seventy-two tulips adorn and surround the dome symbolizing the seventy-two persons who fought with his holiness Imam Hossein (AS) in Karbala and were martyred. The Haram has five entrances, (again symbolic to the Islamic theology related to the prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and the immediate members of his household). There are many service facilities around the mausoleum to respond the needs of pilgrims and visitors to this site.
