Quran Gate at night
Shiraz

Darvaze Qur’ān is located at the northeastern entrance of Shiraz on the way to Marvdasht and Isfahan.


It was first built during the reign of 'Adud ad-Dawla. By the time of the Zand dynasty, it had sustained a lot of damage, so it was restored. Karim Khan Zand added a small room on top, in which were kept a hand-written Quran by Sultan Ibrahim Bin Shahrukh Gurekani. People leaving the city passed under the Quran to be blessed for a safe trip.

During the Qajar dynasty, the gate was damaged by multiple earthquakes. It was later restored by Mohammad Zaki Khan Nouri.
