Imamzadeh Hossein Holy Shrine / امامزاده حسین

Qazvin / قزوین

The Imamzadeh Hossein shrine commemorates Hossein, a son of Imam Reza (765-818 AD), the seventh descendant of the prophet Muhammad. The shrine is from the 16th century, the façade dates from the Qajar period.

The guy with the feather-duster is there to wave it at you when your chador is not worn appropriately (and believe me: it's not easy trying to take pictures AND stop the polyester chador from slipping off at the same time!).

Stunning! Makes me think how India looked when it did not fall into ruins, as it is now! They copied their architecture from Persia!
