Isfahan hosts the second most important cemetery of the Shi'a world; the place in which the dead bodies of many great figures from the past time like Mir Fendereski, sardar Asaad, Banu Amin, Baba Roknoldin, and famous people of the present time like Hossein Kharazi, and thousands of martyrs of the Holy Defense era are laid down.

Iran (IMNA) – The most important old historical cemetery of the world of Islam is located in the southwest of Isfahan with an area of 75 hectares. Takht-e Foulad (Steel Throne) which dates back to the 4th century A.H, is of great importance due to the fact that it is the place where many great figures from the pre-Islamic period to the Islamic Revolution era, and the imposed war martyrs are settled down there.

The historical zone includes different mausoleums; each of them is the burial site of a figure. Mausoleums may belong to an ethnic group, or sometimes to people who lived in a neighborhood, or even to the religious minorities. Takht-e Foulad cemetery of Isfahan is actually made up of mausoleums which have come together; some of them have been destroyed over the years, or many of them have been repaired.
