Madrasa -e- Khan, Shiraz: 2 reviews and 3 photos


Madrassa-e Khan is the theological school in Iran where you are most likely to meet a mullah.

The theological school was founded in 1615. The building and the garden in the courtyard are quite beautiful. The trainee mullahs live in very simple, one-roomed apartments and may study the koran for 10 or 20 years before they feel they are ready to impart their knowledge at a mosque.

Directions: The Madrassa is right next to the Vakil Bazaar.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
