Quran Gate

Qur'an Gate (Persian: دروازه قرآن‎ Darvāzeh Qor'ān) is a memorable door in the southern-focal Persian city of Shiraz ,Iran.

It is situated at the northeastern passageway of the city, while in transit to Marvdasht and Isfahan, between Baba Kouhi and Chehel Maqam Mountains close Allah-O-Akbar Gorge.

The Gate was first worked amid the rule of 'Adud promotion Dawla. When of the Zand administration, it had managed a ton of harm, so it was reestablished and a little room on top was included, in which were kept manually written Qur'āns by Sultan Ibrahim Bin Shahrukh Gurekani. The two Qur'āns are known as Hifdah-Man. Voyagers going underneath the doors were accepted to get the gift of the Holy Book as they started their outing or excursion from Shiraz.

Amid the Qajar administration, the entryway was harmed by numerous quakes; it was later reestablished by Mohammad Zaki Khan Nouri. In 1937 the two Qur'āns were taken from the door and were taken to the Pars Museum in Shiraz, where they remain today. In 1949 the curve of the entryway was reestablished by Hosein Igar, a dealer otherwise called E'temad Al-Tejar.

Today the entryways are a piece of a city stop where Shirazis unwind and cookout amid their recreation hours.
