Mashhad is a city that was the capital of Iran in Afsharid time and nowadays it is the second megacity of Iran and the capital of Razavi Khorasan province. The city is located in the northeast of the country. Since Mashhad is known for housing the tomb of Imam Reza, the eighth Shia Imam, every year more than 30 million Iranian pilgrims and about 1 million foreign pilgrims visit the city and Imam Reza Shrine.
