It's amazing to visit the holy place near the bazaar. The way they preserve the place really show how Iranian people respect jewish community in the country. A must visit place no matter what religions you belong to.

This is definitely a little off the beaten track in Hamedan, NW Iran. There are buses going there from Tehran (must be a 4 hour ride); we were on a private tour and took a specific detour here en route to Tehran. Well worth it,...More

We thought this centrally located small but important site is well worth visiting. The historical issue of the Bibles's book of Esther fits in with the history of Esther and Mordechai having to be buried somewhere. The fellow who takes you in is sincere even...More
