The Third Zarih; Qajari Steel Zarih
This is a simple steel Zarih with dimensions of 3×4 meters and 2 meters height.
The third Zarih relates to Qajar era and was erected in the period of Fath Ali Shah over the Nagin Neshan Zarih in 1238A.H. This Zarih, also decorated with gems, and the dedicated door of Fath Ali Shah had been mounted in the lower part of the holy grave. This precious door is now placed in the upper part of the western terrace of the holy burial chamber preserved in a special frame.
Due to the erosion and damages incurred in its bases and foundations, the third Zarih was removed in 1338 H.S., and transferred to the Central Museum of Astan Quds Razavi, replaced with the fourth Zarih, which was installed over the second Zarih known as Nagin Neshan.
