Qur'an Gate, Shiraz

(150 reviews on the web)
Landmark
Once the city's main point of entry, Qur'an Gate stands majestically at the northeastern end of Shiraz. Initially constructed in the 10th century, the gate was restored several times over the centuries to the monumental sight you see today. Look up to the room located on top of gate, previously home to two handwritten Qurans, now preserved in a nearby museum. Using our world travel planner, Shiraz attractions like Qur'an Gate can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • It's a gate that cars used to pass through before. It is said that it had/has (I don't know) a huge Quran in the top chamber of it. And it is tradition to pass from under a Quran so that you will have a safe trip. This gate is historic and used to be one of the main gates long ago
  • It's nice to go to at night, when lots of Shirazi people gather here to enjoy the sunset and play with their children. It's not a quiet place though, with the motorway running right next to it.
  • Have nice view Very beautiful
  • cool place
