Iranians who were unable to travel to Iraq observed Arba'een in their cities, including Isfahan.

Iran (IMNA) - Arbaeen, the 40th day following the commemoration of Imam Hussein's (PBUH) martyrdom, was observed by Iranians all around the country.

On Wednesday morning, Arbaeen marches were organized throughout Iran, including in Isfahan. Those who were unable to participate in the pilgrims' Arbaeen march in Iraq used that walk as a symbolic gesture.

Participants in Isfahan took part in a symbolic march to Golestan-e Shohada (the cemetery of martyrs). The event is being organized in honor of "those left behind from Arbaeen."

There are many mawkibs (voluntarily set up stations) along the route that offer travelers food, drink, lodging, and medical care.

Officials anticipate that 4 to 5 million people will participate in similar marches that are also staged in other Iranian cities.
