Ali Ibn Hamzeh Holly Shrine, Shiraz

4.2
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.

Where to stay in Shiraz

The main bazaar district in the center of town remains the primary place to look for accommodations in Shiraz. Standard hotels tower over the public squares, and side street hostels offer particularly budget-friendly dormitory room stays. To the north of this central district, you'll find the most opulent options in town, with luxury hotels offering commanding views of traditional Persian gardens, swimming pools, and onsite fine-dining restaurants.
