Iranians commemorate the dead on last Friday of Persian year

Many Iranians in the capital Tehran and other cities around the country have flocked to the cemeteries to say prayers for the deceased on the last Friday of the year before the Persian New Year. 

In Tehran, people have swarmed the Behesht-e Zahra cemetery, by far the largest in Iran in south of the capital, to put flowers and Sabzeh, green sprouts, on the graves of their loved ones as a symbol of the New Year and hand out charity food.

Iranian New Year starts on Tuesday, March 20.
