dc.description The Tomb of Pir-i Alamdar is located in Damghan close to the Masjid-i Jami, or the great mosque. Similar in appearance to other early Seljuk tombs such as Mil-i Radkan and tomb towers at Lajim and Resget, this simple tomb consists of a cylindrical chamber crowned by a dome. Its low hemispherical dome sets it aside among contemporary tombs that are mostly crowned with conical domes. Also absent in this tomb is the crypt, which is seen commonly in later tombs, and especially in those located at Maragha. The entrance faces southwest. Source: Archnet en_US
