Alavids Dome

Alavids dome

One of the post-Islamic masterpieces of architecture and Stucco in Hamedan. Alavids Dome (Gonbad-e Alavian) is located in Alavian Boulevard around the Emamzadeh Abdollah Sq. It is one of the late Seljuks period monuments (14 century A.D), according to the technical identity certification of this building". Alavids family built it originally as a mosque, then a crypt was added to it and it became their family mausoleum. The interior decoration includes exquisite carved stucco and brick panels, which the architectural historian Arthur Upham Pope describes as “opulent imagination". The exterior decoration features inscriptions in Kufic script that were added in the Ilkhanid period. The crypt is accessible through a narrow staircase at the rear of the building, which leads to a large stone sarcophagus at the center of a vaulted chamber. The reason of calling this monument "Alavid Dome" is that in old days, it has a dome but passing the time caused the dome to be demolished. On the other hand, the great attachment of the people to "Sadat" (descendants of the prophet Mohammad) and their belief in Hazrat Ali son of Abutaleb (P.B.U.T.) are the other reasons. Unfortunately, the identities of the persons who have been buried there are not clear. This monument is one of the post-Islamic masterpieces of architecture and Stucco in Hamedan.
