This gate is located at the entrance of Shiraz city from Isfahan, I mean when you come to Shiraz by bus or care from Isfahan city, it's the first place you go by in Shiraz.

The idea of this gate being a place to get a blessing as you head off on your travels (I think that was/is the idea!) is great, and the gate itself is very impressive. Look out for the waterfalls that are up in the hills around it too.

Qur'an Gate used to be the entrance of the city but not anymore. It feels a bit sad and down specially there was some construction going on during our visit. Our hotel was just next to this gate so we got it passed quite a few times. Its an old gate and needs to be looked after better than this... More

A gate that use to mark the only entrance into the city. I saw this whilst heading to persepolis and necropolis. It does have a nice park nearby...the gate itself is not that huge as I've imagined it to be. There is a Qoran kept on the top of the gate which is now in Pars museum..

I just pass through here on the way to Persepoli and back. The Gate is nie arch as a welcoming entrance to the city, but it pale in comparison to other attractions in Shiraz. So it is not a must visit. But there is hill nearby, where there are steps to go up and probably get a good view of... More

Actually there is nothing much to see at the gate! There is a poet memorial nearby! The place is quiet with not much visitors. One can pay a visit if there is much time to kill. If not missing this spot should not be a problem!

I understood that in the 1930s the two handwritten Qurans that were kept at the gate were taken out. They are now in the Pars museum. So to get a blessing from the Holy Book on leaving the city is no well past time. Moreover they built a huge highway with hundreds of cars and trucks passing every minute right... More

More than the Quran gate, the hills across road that has open steps and mini hike to go up and see the birdz eyeview of city is fascinating. Definitely go and see the sunset there
