About Seyed Taj-Ud-Din Shrine

Imamzadeh (offspring of imam) Taj-Ud-Din Jafar is one of Imam Jafar Sadeq's grandsons (who died in 600 AH). He was one of the sayyids of Ali Arizi, the youngest child of Imam Jafar Sadeq (PBUH) in the 5th century AH. At the time of rulling Atabak dynasty, he lived in Fahhadan alley and became known as Seyed Penhoon (means covert man) due to his tendency to isolation and seclusion. As people mostly go to visit his shrine on Sundays, it has been known as Sunday shrine as well. It is said that he had always been fasting and praying in his home every day and night. He used to attend just in Friday mass prayers and got back home after that. According to historical sources, he supposedly possessed some miracles.
