Qur'an Gate, Shiraz
(3.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful gate. Spend less than an hour. Two different view from the front side and the aft side. I have uploaded two picture, take a look at them 
  • There is a way up the hill where you can look down on the darvazeh qoran. This Koran Gate is a good place to go at night with its lights. But also during the day you can enjoy walking through the gate...  more »
  • The history of this gate, where above a Koran to be walled is at its most beautiful. Earlier the road out of the city through this gate and through the Koran was blessed. The view of the city is very beautiful.

  • 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
