The iconic Azadi Tower in western Tehran was lit up on Sunday night to mark the event of Ashura, which fell on August 8 this year.

According to the Rudaki Foundation, the lighting displayed ‘The Evening of Ashura’ by Mahmoud Farshchian, ‘Siege’ by Habibollah Sadeqi, and ‘The Divine Throne Fell on to the Earth’ by Hassan Rouholamin, IRNA wrote.

A number of mixed graphic designs on the theme of Ashura was also displayed.

Ashura, the 10th day of the first month of the Islamic lunar calendar, Muharram, is the climax of the mourning processions for Imam Hussein (PBUH), a grandson of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), and his true companions who were martyred in the modern-day Iraqi city of Karbala by the forces of the second Umayyid caliph, Yazid.
