The Jamkaran Mosque of Qum



This Mosqe is significant becase of the wide spread belief that the hidden Imam, the 12th Imam, Zaman will reappear from Jamkaran well at the appointed time. The Jamkaran Mosque is the Mosque at that well.

Qom has in many ways surpassed Mashhad as the Holiest city in Iran. Partially for the fine schools but also for the proximity to Jamkaran.
