Foods, ceremonies, celebrations, activities, entertainments and all the customs practiced during the holy month of Ramadan in Iran are very interesting topics to be covered in photos.

What follows are photos retrieved from ISNA showing customs and traditions observed in Ramadan across the Islamic Republic of Iran.

One of these traditions is to invite family and friends for fast-breaking (Iftar) time and of course holding special prayers on Eid al-Fitr, a religious holiday marking the end of Ramadan.

In addition to these traditions, which are common in almost all parts of Iran, there are other special traditions and customs in different Iranian cities. Some of these traditions are still practiced, and some are fading away or have slipped into oblivion altogether.

ISNA’s photo collection mostly focuses on what is practiced by people from Iftar to Suhoor.
