If you want to see the glittering mirror design like Shah-E-Cheragh, then go here instead. It is the only holly shrine allows non-muslim to go in and take photo.

This shrine is located fairly close to the main centre of Shiraz, just on the other side of the river. It contains a tomb and is a lot less crowded than the better known Shah e Cheragh shrine. But if you're looking for some peace...More

I can only agree with most of the reviews given, so that I will not elaborate more. Women have to wear a chador, but this is given to all the visiting women free of charge. An absolute "must" when in Shiraz.

Compared to the Shahcheragh complex this mosque with shrine is small, but very much the lively center of the religious community. I visited late afternoon on a Thursday. People come to honor their dead. There are many graves in the courtyard. They offered me sweets...More

This is the tomb of Emir Ali the nephew of Shah Cheragh, it is not as grand a tomb as his uncle's but in some ways such as its quiet contemplative atmosphere it is more impressive. The mass of green mirroring inside is on a...More

If u can't make it to shahcheragh due to crowded time or traffic jam, I suggest u to visit here instead. It's 5 minutes walk from Hafez Tomb.

This was one of the most peaceful places I have visited. The yard inside is a great place to admire the dome. Ladies get a free chador at the entrance and are allowed to enter the shrine at the "women only" entrance on the right...More

The most interesting thing for us perhaps was the need to don a chador if you are a woman. You are handed one at the door -- not black or heavy but made of printed cotton. A bit of a strange feeling but a must...More

It's an old holly shrine that you can pray in its quiet peaceful place. It's good for cleaning mind from all stress we have in our routine life.
