The tabagh keshi and alam keshi ritual

This ritual is typical of the city of Ghazvin. People prepare a large wooden basket about one and a half meters high and one meter thick, many parts of which are decorated with mirrors. This cylindrical basket is placed on the head and transported. In the city of Ghazvin, on the night of Tâsu'â, all the groups of mourners, from mosques and tekyehs, go to the mausoleum of Soltan Seyed Mohammad and there they gather and on the night of the ashurâ they go to the mausoleum of Hossein or "Shâhzâdeh Hossein".
