The Mausoleum of Esther and Mordecai

Hamadan, Iran

Welcome to Mausoleum of Esther in Hamadan, Iran

The Tomb of Esther & Mardecai

The present building of this mausoleum, which is visited by Jewish pilgrims from all over the world, has nothing to speak about from the architectural point of view. Under its simple brick dome there are two graves with some Hebrew inscription up on the plaster work of the wall. Two exquisite wooden tomb-boxes are also to be seen, one of which is of an earlier date and bears an inscription in Hebrew.

The original structure dates to the 7th Century A. H. [13th Century A.D.] and it might have been erected over other and more ancient tombs. The exterior form of this mausoleum, built of brick and stone, resembles Islamic constructions, and the monument consists of an entrance, a vestibule, a sanctuary and a Shah-ni-shin (King's sitting place). Some believe that the mausoleum is the resting-place of Esther, the Achaemenian Queen and wife of Xerxes (Khashayarshah) and the second tomb belongs to her uncle, Mardocai.

Story of Esther - Queen of Persia

Esther 1
1   This is what happened during the time of Xerxes, the Xerxes who ruled over 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush:
2   At that time King Xerxes reigned from his royal throne in the citadel of Susa,
3   and in the third year of his reign he gave a banquet for all his nobles and officials. The military leaders of Persia and Media, the princes, and the nobles of the provinces were present.
4   For a full 180 days he displayed the vast wealth of his kingdom and the splendor and glory of his majesty.
5   When these days were over, the king gave a banquet, lasting seven days, in the enclosed garden of the king's palace, for all the people from the least to the greatest, who were in the citadel of Susa.
6   The garden had hangings of white and blue linen, fastened with cords of white linen and purple material to silver rings on marble pillars. There were couches of gold and silver on a mosaic pavement of porphyry, marble, mother-of-pearl and other costly stones.
7   Wine was served in goblets of gold, each one different from the other, and the royal wine was abundant, in keeping with the king's liberality.
8   By the king's command each guest was allowed to drink in his own way, for the king instructed all the wine stewards to serve each man what he wished.
