The shrines of Hazrate Ma'soumeh at Qom, is one of the most sacred places of Shiite pilgrimage in Iran. Qom's importance as a pilgrimage center dates primarily from the rule of the Safavid monarchs who, after embracing Shiite Islam, generously endowed its major shrines.

Its shops offer a wide range of items such as prayer beads, candies, protective amulets, ceramic vases, essence of jasmine, and a special Qom sweet called sowhan which is a flat wafer made of honey and tasting like butterscotch.
