A holy place where there's the grave of one of Shia's grand grand children. To enter women have to wear Chador, a very long scarf to cover all their body. in the yard there are 5 anonymous martyrs buried here.

There is no point to go north of Tehran to see Emamzadeh Saleh if it is the only place you want to see in this part of the city. If it is combined with a cable car to Tochal, it is a different story.

I loved the beautiful mirror-work inside this mosque. It is next to the Tajrish bazaar and metro station.

This Emamzadeh is located near the mountains and a non muslim tourist is not allowed to enter the building. Therefore there is no point of wasting your time going there unless you visit the bazaar of Tajrish.

It is located in Tajrish square and next to Tajrish bazaar in Tehran's northern Shemiran district. For muslim it is a holy place for Ziarat and for others it is a tourist attraction with a traditional Iranian architecture.
