Shah Cheragh is a tomb of brothers Amir Ahmad and Mir Muhammad, both of whom were brothers of Imam Reza, who took refuge in Shiraz, Iran during the Abbasid persecution of the Shia Muslims.

The tombs became celebrated pilgrimage centres in the 14th century when Queen Tashi Khatun erected a mosque and theological school in the vicinity. See more pics.

Women must put on chador if they plan to enter the shrine itself and you can borrow one outside the Shrine entrance.

Address: Ahmadi square
