Pir-i Bakran, also known as Linjan, is a village located 30 km southwest of Esfahan, Iran.

It contains the mausoleum of Muhammad ibn Bakran, a Sufi saint who taught theology outside the existing structure at the site. The iwan was constructed to serve as his classroom, but was not yet completed at the time of his death in 1303. The structure was later modified to function as his mausoleum. The ancient cemetery of the Jews of Esfahan is situated at front of this complex. It contains tombs inscribed from the second century AD. The most notable tomb is that attributed to the biblical person Serah bat Asher.
