Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine, Shiraz

4.6
Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
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. Use our Shiraz driving holiday app to arrange your visit to Shah-e-Cheragh Shrine and other attractions in Shiraz.

  • Grandiose structure. Superb Islamic architecture. Fine tiles and mosaics. Large courtyards. Very clean. You have to pass security control when entering the complex.
  • People in this shrine place ask help to GOD. Say pray and help each other to have better life. Muslims believe these shrine places has metaphysics energy. Because who reposed there was a good man and GOD love him/her.I think this metaphysic energy comes from their belief.
