Sahn-e Azade
Mashhad, Iran
The Qajar ruler Fath-Ali Shah initiated work on the Sahn-e Azade, also known as the Sahn-e Jadid (the new courtyard), of the Imam Reza Shrine Complex, in 1818/1233 AH. Like the Sahn-e Engelab it is a four-iwan courtyard. The west iwan leading to the tomb was gilded during the reign of Shah Nasir al-Din.
