Qur'an Gate, Shiraz

3.4
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.

  • The monument deserves alone through the city? It is one of the emblematic places, historical, its value/function is symbolic, its architecture is elegant. In addition, can be pleasantly stroll in the 2 gardens that frame it on part and others, on the side of hills, look more the concrete colossus Hotel Shiraz and enjoy to get lunch or dinner to the truly magnificent, both outside that of inside, Haft Khan Complex (see my review).

  • The place looks great at night with the lighting and the waterfalls. During the day you can climb up the nearby hills to get a better view of the area and of all Shiraz.
  • Ok, but just a gate. No cost though. The hill across the road is very nice to walk up. Walkway is all paved and with stairs. There is a great view of the city.
  • Forget the gate and climb the hill for a great view (recommended during sunset!).
  • This is the old main entrance to Shiraz it's a nice walk in the evening during sunset
  • Shiraz main gate ; a good place to go too; historical sightseeing point

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.
