Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine, Shiraz

(500+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • It's a fun attraction that especially the evening is worth to view and take pictures.

  • Quite a lengthy entrance to the mosque, but it's worth it. Men pass without too much trouble, women have a special dress code
