Moshkin Fam Art Museum

Moshkin Fam Art Museum
The recently-founded museum occupies one of the late-Qajar mansions of Shiraz. The house is called after Foruq, a member of the powerful Qavam family. The building occupies an area of about 1,100 sq. m. and consists of the inner and outer sections arranged around separate courtyards. In addition to the spaces common to traditional Shiraz houses, the building has a bath and a Howz Khaneh.

New (Shohada) Mosque

New (Shohada) Mosque
Called "New", as opposed to the Old Congregational Mosque of Shiraz, this mosque is in fact the second oldest mosque in the city. It was built at the order of Atabak Saad ibn Zangi between the years of 1201-1218. As attested by some medieval historians, the mosque was at first built as a part of Atabak's house. When his only daughter was threatened with a fatal malady, he vowed to build a mosque if health were returned to her. She got well, and the ruler kept his promise.

Bibi Dokhtaran Mausoleum

Bibi Dokhtaran Mausoleum
This mausoleum houses the grave of Bibi Dokhtaran, reportedly the daughter of the fourth Shiite Imam, Zein al-Abedin. The structure was built during the Mozaffarid period by Khatun Qatlagh-Beik, the pious wife of Emir Mobarez al-Din and the mother of Shah Shoja. Little has survived of the original structure after the repeated and often excessive repairs.

Shiraz Mausoleum

Imamzadeh Seyed Ala al-Din Hossein(Astāneh)
Āstāneh (“The threshold”) of Seyed Ala al-Din Hossein is the second most import pilgrimage center in Shiraz after Shah Cheragh. This shrine is the last resting place of the Seventh Shiite Imam's son and Shah Cheragh's stepbrother. Legend has it that Seyed Ala al-Din Hossein came to Iran in the early 9th century A.D. to support another stepbrother, Reza, the Eighth Shiite Imam, and was about to set out for Mashhad when he was treacherously murdered in one of Shiraz gardens by the stooges of the local governor. Seyed Ala al-Din's followers cautiously buried his body on the site where his mausoleum now stands.

Imamzadeh Ali ibn Hamzeh

Imamzadeh Ali ibn Hamzeh
Overlooking the Dry River and linked to the south bank of Shiraz via an ancient bridge, currently known as the Ali ibn Hamzeh Bridge, Imamzadeh Seyed Emir Ali ibn Hamzeh is one of the most esteemed shrines of the city. The building allegedly houses the grave of Emir Ali, son of Hamzeh and nephew of Shah Cheragh. He is reported to have been on the way to Khorasan, trying to provide military support for the Eighth Shiite Imam Reza, when his army was defeated, and he had to seek shelter in the mountains north of Shiraz. Ali ibn Hamzeh is said to have hidden in a cave in Mount Baba Kuhi, and to have come to the city only to sell the brushwood he collected in the mountains as a means of earning his living.
