Mehrdad Oskui’s historical postcards on Hajj pilgrimage appear in book 

March 4, 2017

TEHRAN – A collection of historical postcards on the Hajj pilgrimage has appeared in a new book by “Starless Dreams” documentarian Mehrdad Oskui.

Published by Goman Publications in collaboration with the Publications of Allameh Tabatabai University, the book is one in the series “Historical Postcards”. 

The book comprises postcards featuring Hajj rituals in Mecca and the religious sites related to the pilgrimage.

Each card bears additional descriptions, while some carry the exact date the postcards were posted.

Cleric Rasul Jafarian, who is also a researcher of Iranian history, has written an introduction to the book, while a team of researchers have studied each postcard to add accurate cultural and historical information. 

The texts appear both in Persian and English, providing a good opportunity for Non-Iranian individuals interested in Hajj pilgrimage.
