Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine, Shiraz

(4.7/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Shiraz's most important pilgrimage destination, Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine features tombs of Shi'a brothers Amir Ahmad and Mir Mohammad, killed here during the Sunni Abbasid persecution in 835. Two gilt-top minarets flank the tulip-like tiled dome of this mosque and funerary monument. Inside, numerous mirrors reflect light in all of its elaborately designed rooms. A large pool in the front courtyard features evenly spaced fountains and reflects the impressive entrance door plated with gold, which devotees kiss upon entrance. Apparently, entrance is forbidden to non-Muslims unless you know a local. Work out when and for how long to visit Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine and other Shiraz attractions using our handy Shiraz tour planner.

  • The mausoleum is a must for visitors to Shiraz. Very stylish dome with thousands of mirror and elaborate lighting in a scene set. Ladies only (rental)-Tschador allowed.

  • The crystals that adorn the mosque inside give a greenish tone surprising in throughout the visit. From the courtyard you can enjoy the beauty of the dome and the kindness of those who care for the environment.
