Bibi Shahrbanou is a mausoleum with an enamel dome. Legend has it that this is the tomb of Shahrbanou the daughter of the Sassanid Yazdegerd III (590-651 CE) and the mother of the fourth Shia Imam Ali ibn Husayn al-Sajjad (PBUH)(659-713). However, as the mausoleum is located above a mountain, close to a spring and frequented by women there are those who believe that the tomb was actually a temple dedicated to the Persian goddess of water Anahita. There is a cave close by the mausoleum which has a lattice Zarih where pilgrims light candles. Locals believe that if young girls tie strings to this Zarih they will find love.
