Qadamgah lies 23 kms northeast of Neyshabur and is a regular spot on the itinerary of pilgrims visiting the holy city of Mashhad. According to the accounts of the journey, Imam Reza (A.S.) stopped at a spring, besides which he performed the prayer. After the prayer, the impression of his feet miraculously appeared on the stone where he stood. Later, the faithful built a dome besides the spring and installed the impression of the Imam's feet in its southern wall. The present building dates from the Safavid period.
A similar impression of the Imam's feet is preserved in the shrine of Imamzada Muhammad Mahrouq in Nishabur, which seems to suggest that a miracle also took place while Imam Reza (A.S.) passed through that city.
