Introduction: Gonbad-e Alavian (Alavid Dome)

Aavid Dome is located in Alavian Boulevard. 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". Alavid family built it originally as a mosque, then a Crypt was added to it and it became their mausoleum.

In a kenning, Khaghani referred to it as "Gonbad-e-Sabz" (Green Dome). In Hamedan folclore, we find a similar case:
Deladoshmam Deladosl1mam Deladoshm For the sake of green dome, worm in black The reason of using "worn III black" is that: Even now, some of the Alavid families who live in Hamedan wear black garments and known as mentioned above. Ravandi in his "Majrna'-ol-Tavarikh val Ghesas" (a collection of historical stories) has mentioned it "Tarieh Aslaf".

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" (descendents of the prophet Mohammad) and their belief in Imam Ali (P.l3.U.H.) are the other reasons.
Unfortunately, the identities of the persons who have been buried there arc not clear. This monument IS one of the post-Islamic masterpieces of architecture and Stucco in Hamedan. It has been registered as an Iranian National and Historical monument No 93, dated 1931.1.4.
