You will probably see the Haram Motahar on your way from the airport to the city. This is Imam Khomeini’s Mausoleum. The National Hero’s shrine is here, together with some of his family members. It is an enormous complex, quite far from the city center. Thankfully there is a metro stop nearby (though it takes ages to get there – but may be quicker than driving). Inauguration was in 2015 but there are still some unfinished parts. I would recommend the visit if you are a fan of History and have plenty of time in the city. Otherwise you can ask your cab driver to stop by on your way to the airport.
