There is also the Talar-e Ayaheh Museum, known for being a venue for coronations and royal weddings.

Mashhad, one of the major cities in Iran, features the religious centre of the country. The city pays tribute to Imam Reza, a venerated figure among Shia Muslims. To better appreciate the sights, one must visit Mashhad after the major pilgrim seasons. Tourists can gaze around the beautiful exteriors of religious places like Boq'eh-ye Khajeh Rabi (a mausoleum for an apostle of Prophet Mohammad) or inspect the collections in the Main Museum. For those who want to see the entire city from above, one will need to hike to the top of the rocky hill of Kuh-e Sangi and pass by souvenir shops.

Kish, an island just off the central southern part of the country, also has various attractions waiting for tourists. The Kariz-e-Kish will let one see an old network of wells and underground tunnels that used to supply potable water for the people living in the island. Once tourists finish going around this site, Harireh is the next stop. This ancient city features a complex containing a mosque, bath-house, and other structures.

One of the places to be when going around nearby countries is Bahrain, a low-lying country by the Persian Gulf. This place is well known for its pearl culture, which tourists can buy as pretty souvenirs. Discounts and nonnegotiable prices are both offered; the value for the money is justified well enough, however. Other than the lustrous pearls, tourists interested in the country can visit the National Museum. This beautiful building by the waterfront has various collections from archaeological digs such as agate and carnelian beads and earthenware burial jugs.
