Gaz Square
Shiraz

As the first city in Iran to have natural gaz pipes to all homes, a monument were built at this square with a ""ever"" burning gaz flame as a symbol. The square was simply named ""Gaz Square"", as landmark in Shiraz. The flame is not burning any more but the monument and the gaz pipes to homes are still there.

Shiraz was the capital of Persia during the Zand dynasty from 1750 until 1781, as well as briefly during the Saffavid period.Shiraz is known as the city of poets, wine and flowers.
