The stunning Shah Cheragh in Iran

How to visit the Shah Cheragh

While not technically a blog about the Shah Cheragh, I wanted to include this post from Boredpanda as it features some stunning images of a must visit site in Iran. If you can look past their click-baity headlines to the actual content you will get an idea of what I’m talking about!

Shah Cheragh is a funerary monument and mosque in Shiraz, Iran. The site has a rather mysterious past. According to one story, around 900 A.D. a traveller spotted something shining from a distance. He approached the area to investigate and found an illuminated grave.

An armoured corpse of an important Muslim figure was found inside and the area became a pilgrimage destination for Shia Muslims. A structure was built to house the tomb and as time went by it became more and more complex.
