Iran is one of the best countries to experience Muslim pilgrimage and has two main pious Muslim cities, Qom and Mashhad. Masoumeh and Emam Reza Holy Shrines are the most famous Muslim sacred destinations in Iran.

The mausoleum of Imam Reza, the eighth Shia Imam, located in Mashhad.  Also, this complex of Imam Reza Holy shrine contains Imam Reza Tomb, Goharshad Mosque, Balasar Hazrat Mosque, libraries, halls, Centers for answering religious questions, Islamic institutes, Astan Quds Razavi Central Museum, Coin Museum, Carpet Museum, Museum of Anthropology, and tombs of some outstanding Muslims such as Sheykh Bahaee, Sheykh Hor-e Amoli, Pir-e Palan Dooz. Every year millions of Muslim pilgrims go for ziarat of Imam Reza Shrine. There are different facilities for pilgrims’ transportations in the courtyard that includes electric vehicles and wheelchairs.

One of the other sites for ziarat in Iran is Hazrat Masoumeh Imam Reza’s beloved sister holy shrine in the city of Qom, the second holy city in Iran after Mashhad. So if you want to have ziarat in Iran, this will be one of your destinations. Besides the spiritual atmosphere, the architecture of Fatima Masumeh Holy Shrine is marvelous with a lot of details.

To join this tour as a Muslim, you can get Iran Pilgrimage Visa. Obtaining a pilgrimage visa and tourist visa process are almost the same with some minor differences. The process of issuing Iran pilgrimage visa code is less time-consuming and more hassle-free than tourist visa code issuance process, especially for America, Canada, and the English passport holders. Moreover, Pilgrimage visa stamping fee is lower than the price for stamping tourist visa. It is possible to decrease the pilgrimage tour package fee for the pilgrims that get pilgrimage visa. On the other hand, with Pilgrimage visa, the traveler can only go for Ziarat in Qom and Mashhad sacred places. To visit the other attractions in these cities or even other cities in Iran, they should obtain Iran tourist visa instead if Pilgrimage visa.
