Location: North of Tabriz
Historical period: Illkhanian-Safavid Era
In the north of Tabriz, there are picturesque red-colored mountains named Oon-ebn-Ali or Sorkhab. On the crest of this mountain, there is a mausoleum whose architecture is attributed to Illkhanian style. The mausoleum has three rooms, a mosque –like tomb, a porch with five stone pillars, and two minarets. The tomb is attributed to the sons of Ali ibn Abi Talib (as), oon ibn Ali and Zeid ibn Ali, and it is a pilgrimage site of people and mountaineers of Tabriz. The monument was repeatedly destroyed in the past, first by the Ottoman troops and then by disastrous earthquakes of 1134 and 1193 AH. It was restored again, though.
Thanks to recent forestry and establishing the most modern cable car of Iran by Tabriz municipality, the mountain serves as one of the most beloved promenades of Tabriz.
