    Historians believe that Halime Khatun is Musa ibn Ja'far al-Kadhim (also spelled and al-Kazim) daughter which has brought great attention to the religious people of Qazvin. Based on their belief she is Imam Reza’s sister, eighth Shia Imam, the only one who died while traveling through Iran and was buried in Mashhad.

    Her holy shrine is of three stories and is decorated by marble. It contains a beautiful big dome, a gilded Zarih (an ornate, usually gilded, lattice structure, that encloses a grave in a mosque or Islamic shrine), and an 8-meter Iwan (a rectangular hall or space, usually vaulted, walled on three sides, with one end entirely open).

    Halime Khatun's tomb is based in a cellar of 70 m2 area which interior part is adorned with eye-catching decorative tilework, brickwork, and painted calligraphy on the surrounding walls.

    On the eastern side of the holy shrine is a mosque built in 170 m2 area that is designed by inscriptions of Persian poems and is written in Nastaliq on blue tiles.

    Tips and ideas

    You should know that Qazvin is a crowded and small city so don’t expect to find a proper spot to park your car; you’d better use nearby parking lots and walk to your destination. You can be sure that it won’t take more than 15 minutes. You can also use the map below to get to all nearby monuments and restaurants easily. Do not miss the beautiful Arazi House, Qajar Bathhouse, and the exceptional Zaeem House which are just a few blocks away. Also, if you continue Bou Ali Street to east, at the street corner you can buy Halim (a Persian food made by meat and wheat usually eaten for breakfast) and taste this special meal loved by approximately all Iranians.
