In Qadamgah village (98km from Mashhad), a two-block scattering of souvenir shops and kababis fronts this charming 17th-century octagonal shrine with fine blue dome and attractive tiling. It sits in a pretty garden of ancient plane trees and enshrines a black stone slab indented with what are believed to be the footprints of Imam Reza . Floods of pilgrims find the site very moving so questioning aloud the authenticity of the Imam’s (remarkably large) prints would be rather bad form.
