On Ibn Ali Shrine

Some historians believe the shrine belongs to two Muslim clerics called On Ibn Ali and Zeyd Ibn Ali – sons of Imam Ali. It concludes 9 rooms, 6 domes, porch, and minaret. The building pillars were made of wood but in the recent renovations, the rocky pillars are replaced.

This shrine has been built in the 15th century. It was destructed during the Ottomans attack Iran. But in Safavid Era, it was renovated under the order of Shah Abbas (King Abbas). New studies show that On Ibn Ali and Zeyd Ibn Ali were not the sons of Imam Ali, but were close friends of his. Yet people have great respect for this shrine.
