This building houses pilgrims visiting the Mausoleum of Mohammad Ibn Zeid, one of the interesting sites of Old Merv.
As a descendant of the Prophet and consequently the contender to imamate, Mohammed ibn-Zeid headed the revolt against Arabian caliphs Omeyads in the 8th century. Shiits who supported him proclaimed ibn-Zeid imam but in 10 months the revolt was suppressed and Mohammed ibn-Zeid was killed. His body was crucified on a cross in Kufa while his head was sent to caliph in Damascus.
