Qom

Located in south of Tehran there is a province which is famous because of one of the most popular holy shrines in Iran which belongs to Masoumeh the sister of Imam Reza; the eighth Imam of Shia Muslims, whose shrine is in Mashhad in North east of country.

Qom is also the center of Mullas (Muslim clergymen) which spend their lives on studying and preaching Shia Islam. The religious school in Qom dates back to 19th century because the Mullas wanted to prevent the Islam students from migrating to Najaf (A city in Iraq) to study Shia Islam.   

Before the Islamic revolution in 1979 Qom was completely traditional and far from modern civilization but when Komeini chose there as the first place to settle down right after the revolution, Qom drew attention and started to develop as fast as possible until now.
