Ali Ibn Hamzeh Holly Shrine, Shiraz

(4.1/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Feel the intimate atmosphere at Ali Ibn Hamzeh Holly Shrine. Learn about history from the friendly locals at the tomb of Emir Ali, who died during his mission to help Imam Reza. Admire the stained-glass window art, whose beauty matches the intricately carved door, but be fully enchanted by the Venetian mirror work covering the walls. Look up at the Shirazi dome to see the full capacity of the artwork. Employees at the shrine provide chadors to women, so don't worry about bringing your own.
