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.

  • We went touring in the area, which is dominated by a giant roundabout and big, ugly hotels. Although it was fun to see the port, it is certainly not worth a detour.

  • 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.
  • It has a great view of the city, specially in night 🌃
  • Beautiful historic place. Better to go at night.
