Taʿziya khānī is a religious play based on historical, tragic and epic events of Karbala and the martyrdom of the third Imam of Shi’as, Imam al-Husayn (a) b. ‘Ali (a), his relatives and companions and the Household of the Prophet (s). Some scholars have said that performing such plays dates back to the time of Daylamites and it changed its form to the current style at the time of Safavids and reached its peak at the time of Qajars and then it was performed in some other countries.
