This age also is considered as a main historical point in the architecture of holy shrine. The Azadi courtyard was constructed in this age and its western balcony, known as Naseri balcony, was gilded. The tileworks and the other decorations of Azadi courtyard were also accomplished in this era. Mirza Sadiq Qaem Maqam Nuri also accomplished the mirror works of the holy shrine in 1275A.H./1854A.D. The mirror works of Dar-al-Siyadah, Dar-al-Huffaz and Tawhid Khanah porticos date back to this era.
