Hesar Kharvan village in Qazvin province is among the places where Ta’zieh, the Iranian-Islamic passion play, has always been an integral part of mourning ceremonies held for the martyrdom of third Shiite Imam, Hussein ibn Ali, during the lunar month of Muharram.

Ta’zieh is among the religious customs that have been observed in Iran since long times ago. Such plays have already turned into a custom of the region.
