Yes, it is 20 minutes out of town by taxi however it is well worth the effort....super friendly people out here [they see hardly any foreigners ]
I got there just before dusk so i could view it in the day and then watch the lights come on....wow !! This is a huge sight.

Thank Gtirman

The shrine is a very impressive complex. The courtyard is expansive, and the vlue tiling is impressive. Entry is free, and women must wear a chador which they provided at the door also free of charge. It was quite quiet when we went, some men were praying in a small room at the opposite end to the shrine and it was nice to hear the sound of their melodic prayers.

The shrine building itself has different entrances for men and women, women enter on the right, leave your shoes at the door. The entrance was was mirror tiled and very impressive. Inside are more mirror tiled ceilings, stained glass windows, chandeliers. It is quite beautiful.
We combined visiting here with other sites around Kashan on the way to Esfahan and it was definitely worth the visit, ask your driver to add it to your itinerary.

We visited this shrine near Kashan in April 2016. The shrine is a little way out of the city of Kashan. The shrine of Imamzadeh Hilal Ibn Ali, son of Ali, son-in-law of prophet Muhammad (“Imamzadeh” means “son of the Imam”).

The shrine is huge and features some very attractive tiling. It is well attended by local people who are welcoming to tourists.

This shrine has something indefinably 'special' - a beautiful atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
