Mashhad recieves around 20 million tourist a year. Mostly domestic but also foreign. That is why there are so many projects.

Wow I had no idea Mashhad was such a popular tourist destination! I guess most of the millions of tourists are Shia muslims going for pilgrimage or something. That's interesting. Are there other tourist sites in Mashhad that would attract other types of domestic or foreign tourists? Maybe like historical and cultural sites or something? Would it be worth my time visiting Mashhad too next year when I visit iran? I'm not really interested in the holy sites (unless they are interesting to see).

Yes exactly. But religious tourism has beceome like going to disney nowadays. Most go shopping, sightseeing, and to the adventure parks. For example irans largest water park is in mashhad. The malls are very nice as well. Mashhad has some original iranian department stores that were started in mashhad years ago. They are similar to large department stores in the west like macys or galeria kaufhof. The riligous places are also nice to see as they are Irans vatican. Huge, a city in a city, and good architecture. There are museums within site.

I'm from mashhad and i lived there.i really don't think religious cities like mashhad has become like "disney" or is going to.they're kind of boring.after 30 years of revolution people still go to shandiz for spending their time.
except of proma, there is not great mall or place in mashhad to spend their time.
also the water park is a bit far.
Tehran still is a lot better.

I dont mean mashhad has become disney, i mean the expierence of a pilgrimage has changed. Nowadays, most of peoples time is spent on side events like shopping and sightseeing. Ironicly, in orlando home of disney the sights are also far away between 30-45 mins drive.

There are always note that AKhonds talking about Mahshad which is going to be like Mecca (Skyline) and they are against it. They mention, we should not make any building taller than Marghd-Emam Reza.

We need a mega city in Khorasan, when there is a big city it help to grow that region, scientifically, industrially, and ... like Neyshabour during Khayyam time.

I think government/Investor should spend more money in Neyshabour and not Mashhad. Mahshad even does not has the potential to grow a football team (Look to ABouMoslem).

Only population grow and city is getting big and crap while you can do nothing, sad and religious and akhonds prevent to bring there happiness or an young atmosphere.

Soon, when you government change and people will stop going to Mashahad, mostly go to Shomal, SHiraz, Kish, ... I think we will see lots of poverty and unemployment in Mashhad.

Many of these 20M tourist are forced to go there like students who go to "Ordoo" like what they have for SHalamche and so on.

Mashhad's importance and growth does not come from the religious base only and I don't think Mashhadis will starve to death if the regime changes. Its importance also does not come from the religious 'ordoo' or craps like that either. Remember Mashhad is next to the historic City of Tus and its growth started when Tus begin to go down. Emam Reza himself came to this region because Tus was of a huge political and cultural importance at that time.

Before revolution, Mashad, Tabriz and Esfahan size, importance and population were very much similar to each other and religion was not playing a role at that time. Mashhad contribution to modern Iranian economy, politics, art, science, art and specially literature is obvious in the past and present. Remember Iran Khodrou started with khayami in Mashhad in a repair garage and other big names like Bahar, Akhavan sales, Shajarian and so many other famous Mashadis had no preference and had nothing to do with religion.

Even for the tourism, Most of the tourists vising Mashhad are not really coming for the Shrine only. They come because Mashhad, with Iranian standards of course, offers them a lot more tourist verity than other places. Big fancy hotels, Big shopping centers, which is always heaven for Iranians, Amusement parks, Historic sites like Nader shah Museum, Tus, Haroonieh, Suburb shopping towns of Torghabeh & Shandiz, big variety of nice restaurants and "lamkadeh" , and above all, shishlik is a good boost for most Iranians to pack up for a visit. And may be calling it a ZIARAT too.

Thanks for your comments. I am glad to hear that there are plenty of opportunity to grow as a mega city in that region. I was aware of the need in Khorasan and its potential for having/developing a mega city.

Still I think Neyshabour should get more attention and money from what it is today.

Yes. I don't know Much about Mashhad, and I always thought I am not a fan of being "Pa Boos" of imam reza.
