Golden tiles are among the exquisite assets and one of the evidences concerning the history and antiquity of the Holy Shrine of Imam al-Riḍā (A.S.) and the city of Mashhad. A major part of these tiles date back to the 6th/12th to 8th/15th centuries. A large number of these tiles are still preserved in their original places and a number of others, including the niches (miḥrābs), have been transferred to the AQR Museum. This article briefly introduces the golden tiles of the Holy Shrine, their origin and place of manufacture, the tile workers, the tiles themes, the tourists and the historians who have described them, and the present condition of the tiles.
