Zahedan city is the capital of Sistan and Baluchestan province. The population of Zahedan is mainly composed of two tribes, Baluch and Sistani. Baluch men, our Sunni compatriots, generally wear local clothing that is very close to that of Pakistanis.
The Regional Museum of Southeastern Iran is located in Zahedan and includes very valuable ancient artifacts of Sistan and Baluchestan and the introduction of the culture and history of this region of Iran.
Zahedan does not have many urban attractions. The Jameh Mosque of Makki and Isha’a Al-Tawhid Mosque are two Sunni mosques in Zahedan. Not many years have passed since the construction of these mosques. The The Makki Mosque has a very large and magnificent architecture similar to the historic mosques of Istanbul, and the Isha’a Al-Tawhid Mosque has beautiful and magnificent minarets. These mosques are also places of study for Sunni religious scholars.
Another attraction of Zahedan is a flea market in this city. This bazaar, which is located in the Rasouli intersection neighborhood in this city, is a place to offer stock and secondhand cheap foreign clothes that have entered Iran through the Pakistan border.
