Imam Reza Holy Shrine; inside view

After some months of stop blogging, today I felt that I need to start it again. During this time I was busy with studying and also not much interested in photographing and writing. I passed difficult days, name it difficult because I was not in a good mood. Now I just want to stop thinking about silly things and do what ever which makes me happy and fresh like all those old days. Of course one of them is blogging!

And about today's post...You can see the inside of Imam Reza's shrine. The place that I really love not just because I believe in Islam but because of the relaxing atmosphere it has.
Since it's forbidden to take photo by camera from the inside, I took these pictures by my mobile camera so forgive me for the bad quality!
