The revered Shah Abbas I might well be turning in his grave at the senseless destruction wrought on what was once a fine Seljuk-era shrine . Shah Abbas chose to be buried here because he revered the saint Habib Ibn-e Musa. The king’s low, black porphyry tombstone is near the shrine’s entrance, but almost everything else from the original tomb has been cleared away and replaced by a bigger, uglier concrete monstrosity.
