Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine, Shiraz
(4.7/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • 景點不收費,但一般觀光客會由他們的導遊陪同參觀,因此某些清真寺內部是無法進入的 但若是被認定為當地人,稍微搜身即放行,如此一來便可看到閃耀富麗的清真寺內部 
  • I visit it at night and since we are in the 3 sacred October months, November and December the interior cannot be visited but the outside also is worthwhile. We accompany a guide of way compulsory and free us play a boy student of Spanish charming Emilio them women must put is a chador that you lend in the same mosque.
