11% Rise in Foreign Rail Passengers to Mashhad

The number of foreign visitors travelling to the northeastern city of Mashhad, capital of Khorasan Razavi Province, by train saw an increase of 11% during the first three months of the current fiscal year (March 21-June 21) compared with last year’s corresponding period, 
Mashhad is home to the holy shrine of Imam Reza (PUBH), the eighth Shia Imam. It is the second most populous city in Iran. The metropolis annually hosts around 25 million tourists and pilgrims, which add to its demographic load. The speed at which the city’s population is growing far exceeds the speed of public transport development.
