The Imāmzādeh Hamzah mosque is located in the Sheshghelan suburb of Tabrīz next to Maqbaratoshoara and the Museum of Ostad Bohtouni. It is also near Amir Nezam House, House of Seghat ol Islam and Saheb ol Amr Mosque.
Sayyid Abi al-Qasim Hamzah is a son of Imam Musa ibn Ja'far al-Kadhim who is credited for the genealogy of the Saffavids. Hence, the Imāmzādeh Hamzah is a "de facto ancestral cemetery". Thus, it strengthens the notability of its link to the mosque in Ardabil where the elite Saffavids have been buried. The style of decoration of the Hamzah Mosque is further enhanced and has therefore enjoyed sustained patronage.
