3 religious medals

These are most probably Shia pilgrimage souvenirs from Kerbela, Damaskus or other Shia shrines outside or inside of the Iran.

Any further help is very welcome.

The building on the first token is the Imam Reza shrine in Iran.

And I think the other two show the inner shrine of Imam Reza inside the mosque: certainly the first looks a lot like the image from 1935 below.
