City of Mashhad

IMG_4495In this episode I’m talking about four major categories of tourism attractions in the city of Mashhad. Mashhad is Iran’s number 1 when it comes to religious attractions. But it’s not all. Mashhad is also important from other tourism aspects as well which I’ve briefly covered here. This entire episode was spoken in Farsi.

این قسمت از پادکست فارسی را من در شهر مشهد ضبط کردم. در این قسمت من توضیح مختصری راجع به شهر مشهد می دهم. شهر مشهد، به واسطه حضور حرم مطهر رضوی در این شهر، اولین جاذبه مذهبی کشور ایران محسوب می شود. اما جاذبه های گردشگری این شهر تنها به جاذبه مذهبی خلاصه نمی شود

    • Dear Mr. Syed Zahid Hussain, Thank you for commenting on this website. The focus of this podcast is to introduce Iran a little bit more and interview with the somehow experts in the various fields that are less heard or just interesting to hear and work on again. I am actually planning to cover some of the history of Islam where it relates to Iran and coming all the way to the Imam Reza (a.s) in Mashhad. It’ll take few episodes to cover in details and I hope it comes out in few weeks. And about your specific question sir, I don’t know where it is accessible to take religious studies online. However, Almustafa International university may offer some courses. Please check this:
