NOTES: The Emamzadeh Darb-e-Emam (or Darb-i Imam), which means the shrine of the Imams, is a funerary complex consisting of an ancient cemetery, shrine structures, and courtyards representing different construction periods and styles within the present day Dardasht quarter of Isfahan. The complex dates back to 1453, but has been added to over the centuries, particularly during the Safavid period, when the two domes were added in 1602 and 1671. A second tiled portal was added in the 18th century and a hospital built on part of the site in the 19th century.
