SHAFAQNA – Assistant of Sacred Premises and Pilgrims Affairs of Astan Quds Razavi reported the start of a new plan for making the pilgrimage more orderly and organized in the Holy Burial Chamber.
Sayed Khalil Munabbati said, “With respect to the ever-increasing population growth and the facilitated transportation by cars, trains, and planes, the number of pilgrims of the Razavi Holy Shrine has consequently grown largely and since all pilgrims are eager to visit the Holy Burial Chamber of Imam Reza (A.S.), the huge crowd of pilgrims in this holy place has caused problems especially for patients, the elderly, children, and pregnant women.”
“In the new plan, visiting the Holy Burial Chamber will be possible through two sites around the Zarih in the orderly lines of pilgrims who can attend in the Holy Burial Chamber from the head side and foot side of Hazrat (A.S.)”, he remarked.

Stressing on cooperation of pilgrims with the servants of the Holy Shrine, he said, “We request dear pilgrims to cooperate with their servants in the Holy Burial Chamber by observing order and discipline so as to provide for a spiritual and relaxed pilgrimage for themselves and other pilgrims.”
