Salsabil Alley

Salsabil alley is one of the most famous and oldest streets in Mashhad located in Daneshgah Street (University St). I don't know exactly who this wall-painted man is but he must be a war martyr. We have several of these wall paintings around the city walls show the martyrs during the Islamic Republic after the revolution. The government always show much respect to the martyrs because they actually owe them. Good to know that Salsabil is an Islamic Arabic term referring to a river in paradise.
