We got here during ashura mourning. Lots of piligrims and a ceremony which is rather show of colors and flagillation took place. Women needs to wear chador a full size dress with head cover. As for the site it is impressive islamic religious architecture.

It is recommended to ones who are religious and interesting the architect . I wasn’t so interested, because it was so crowded. But definitely it is one of the places which I could meditate there if wasn’t crowded.

Shah Cheragh is the most impressive architectural complex in Shiraz. Every tourist will get a special tour from the government organization. It is absolutely free and very interesting. You will be asked to leave your camera and backpack in the safety box outside the shrine....More
