Qur'an Gate, Shiraz
(3.3/5 based on 130+ 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.

  • More than the Quran gate, the hills across road that has open steps and mini hike to go up and see the birdz eyeview of city is fascinating. Definitely go and see the sunset there 
  • This arch over the old road out of Shiraz is worth stopping at. When in use as a roadway readings of the Qur'an would be made from the top of the arch and this was believed to bestow good luck on the ...  more »
  • Gate of the Koran have special room above the main transit, which kept the Quran. Each traveler could pray and reread favorite places from the Koran. The rest will still receive its portion of blessings, passing under the Holy Book.

  • 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
