The study of Islamic Period buildings in Iran proves the presence of countless religious and non-religious tombs that are scattered in most parts of this border and region. As one of the most important elements of Islamic-Iranian architecture, these buildings have a special diversity, so that their study reveals the architectural and decorative features of each period. Tomb for religious Personalities in Iran has received more attention than other Islamic countries; the reason for this is the role of tombs and its integration with the customs and religion of Muslim Iranians, and this is the reason that justifies the continued popularity of religious tombs in Iran. In this research, the architecture of the tomb of Sultan Ibrahim Reza located in Abgarm village of Darmian city, South Khorasan province will be introduced.
