Quran Gate in Shiraz
Located in northern entrance of Shiraz Quran Gate was built first in 939 with a holy Quran on the top, so that the people passing beneath would travel along with God s care, & arrive safely to their destination.
It was renewed in zandiyeh era (1758-1779) with 2 Qurans. In 1936 the gate was ruined& Qurans were taken to museum. Finally the new Gate was constructed in 1948 with a little distance of the old one .
