Tomb of Esther and Mordechai
Jews, at least in Iran, have always worship Esther and Mordechai like prophets and believed they were the saviors of the Jewish community. Esther (meaning star) was the Jewish queen of Ahasuerus, the king of Persia, and the daughter of Mordechai’s uncle. She was very beautiful, brave, and intelligent. Therefore, when the king’s chief advisor, Haman, tried to convince the king to order the mass murder of Jews, jealous of the growing influence of Jews in the court of the king, Esther and her cousin, Mordechai, foiled the plan and gained the Jews rights to kill their enemies.
