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.

  • Quran Gate is located in northeast of Shiraz in the canyon of Allah-o Akbar between Chehel Maqam Mountain, & Baba-Koohi Mountain located at the exit of Shiraz towards the city of Marvdasht. This is one of the most beautiful Islamic gates. From here, you can take a bird's eye view of the Shiraz. View is beautiful indeed. During winter, Iranian families come here for picnic or lunch too. They come with carpets, & food & enjoy the moments there. In the evening, whole city sparkles like a stars. So, you must visit this gate, if you are in Shiraz.

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.
