Ta’ziya at Female Prison in Homeland
In this period, performing Ta’ziya had a fast development. Fath ‘Ali Shah had a special interest in Ta’ziya. He appointed some courtiers to the management of mourning programs and Ta’ziya plays managed by the government in the month of Muharram and he himself attended in some performances of Ta’ziya, especially on the days of Tasu’a and ‘Ashura’. Some courtiers and noblemen used to hold sessions of mourning and Ta’ziya in Takiyya (mourning halls) or in the yards of their houses.
