Ashura in Tehran

The day of Ashura falls on the 10th of Muharram, the first month of the Islamic calender.

Every year, in the day of Ashura, plenty of people dressed in black, take to street to mourn the  martyrdom of Imam Hussein and his companions.

Here is some photos of Iranian shiite Muslims mourning in the day of Ashura in the center of Tehran, Iran.
