The Zarih
The Zarih [the holy burial chamber] is a lattice encompassing the case (Sandouq) placed over the holy grave of Imam Reza (A.S.). According to evidences, the first Zarih was erected and installed over the sacred grave during the Safavid era. But, there is not enough historical evidence to prove the real date of erecting and installing Zarih before that period. So far, five burial chambers have been erected on the holy grave surrounding both the sacred case (Sandouq) and the holy gravestone of Imam Reza (A.S.).

The First Zarih; Safavid Wooden Zarih

The Second Zarih; Nader-Marked Pearl (Nader-Negin Neshan) Zarih

The Third Zarih; Qajari Steel Zarih

The Fourth Zarih; Shir wa Shekar Zarih

The Fifth Zarih; Sunlight Zarih
