The Jamkaran Mosque of Qum

This Mosqe is significant becase of the wide spread belief that the hidden Imam, the 12th Imam, Zaman will reappear from Jamkaran well at the appointed time. The Jamkaran Mosque is the Mosque at that well.

Prayer carpets make prayer easier on the knees. In some places directional rugs and carpets are used but the main requirement is that they are clean.
Qom has in many ways surpassed Mashhad as the Holiest city in Iran. Partially for the fine schools but also for the proximity to Jamkaran.
