About Imamzade Abdollah Shrine of Bafq

Based on the poems installed on the top of the monument, this shrine belongs to Abdollah-Ibn-Mousa (PBUH) known as Zahireddin which in people's colloquial language is known with this title but there is no evidence that Abdollah-Ibn-Mousa, the exact son of the seventh imam, is buried in Bafq. Because Zahireddin title has just been widespread and used for the sayyids among the generation of Imam Sadegh (PBUH) and this title has been given to this monument since Safavid dynasty.
