Quran Gate

-Room-اتــاق هــا- Royal Hotel Shiraz- هتل رویال شیراز

The most famous and well-known tourist attraction of Shiraz is called Quran Gate. In the past, the city of Shiraz had 6 gates, but now the only remaining gate of this city is the gate of Shiraz. This gate was built by Az-Dawla Dailami and a Quran was placed on it so that travelers could pass under it safely.

The Quran Gate was rebuilt during the reign of Karim Khan Zand, and by his order a chamber was built above the Iranian gate so that two exquisite Qurans, known as the 17-kilogram Quran, could be placed inside this chamber. These Qurans have now been transferred from the Shiraz Gate to the Pars Museum. Shiraz Gate is located in the northeast of this city and between the two mountains of Chehel Magham and Babakohi.

This gate is located exactly at the entrance of Shiraz city, so those who enter this city from Isfahan-Shiraz road will see this building. The construction of the Quran Gate is very beautiful and valuable and has a special reputation. It is not bad to know that Jahannama Garden, Khajavi Kermani Tomb and Hafeziyeh, which are among the sights of Shiraz, are located a short distance from Shiraz Gate.
