Imamzadeh Seyed Hamzeh Mausoleum

Related to Tabriz city (located in East Azerbaijan province)
Seyed Hamzeh Mausoleum is an Imamzadeh mosque complex located in Tabriz (East Azerbaijan Province). The mosque contains the grave of Hamzah, son of the Twelver Shi'ah Imam, Musa al-Kazim (Musa-bne Jafar).

This mausoleum is also a place for pilgrimage and very beautiful. It is the remnant of the Safavid and Qajar eras. The initial date of this structure is the beginning of the 8th century AH.

The Imamzadeh Hamzah is located in the Sheshgelan suburb of Tabriz next to Maqbarat-o-shoara (Mausoleum of Poets) and the Museum of Ostad Bohtouni. It is also near Amir-Nezam House, House of Seghat ol Islam and Saheb ol Amr Mosque.

Sayyid Abi al-ghasim Hamzah is a son of Musa Kazim who is credited for the genealogy of the Saffavids. Hence, the Imamzadeh Hamzah is a "de facto ancestral cemetery". Thus, it strengthens the notability of its link to the mosque in Ardabil where the elite Saffavids have been buried. The style of decoration of the Hamzah Mosque is further enhanced and has therefore enjoyed sustained patronage.

The exquisite mausoleum dates back to the 14th century (8th century Hijri yearAH), with influence from the Safavid and Qajar dynasties and is thus a pilgrimage centre.

The extensive mirror work within the mosque is common to many of the Imamzadeh throughout Iran.
