Darvazeh-ye Quran

The modern assembly of arches that form Shiraz’s ceremonial gateway until recently housed a revered antique Quran (since moved to the Pars Museum opposite the fort in the centre of town) that travellers traditionally passed beneath before undertaking a journey. Now the main reason for visiting the gateway is to enjoy Khaju Garden and its teahouse, or to climb up to the city viewpoints on either side of the road.
