My Iran Trip 2017 : 4th Day Shiraz (9 Oct) - Part I

Whole day walking tour.

Shahcheragh Holy Shrine (In day time)     

Nasir ol Molk Mosque (aka Pink Mosque)
Entrance Fee : 150000 rials
               

Naranjestan Museum
Entrance Fee : 300000 rials
          



Stunning illuminated artworks selling at the museum shop.  All costs are in Euro.

So tempted to buy .......  But couldn't.  I need to control my spending since it was impossible to transfer or withdraw money, let alone the usage of credit cards due to the sanctions in the past the country is still not connected to the international finance system.  Alas!
Arg of Karim Khan (Karim Khan Citadel)
Entrance Fee : 200000 rials
     


In October, the lunar month of Muharram in Iran, you can see these black flags everywhere.

A Little bit of history
The event marks the anniversary of the Battle of Karbala, when Imam Hussein ibn Ali, the grandson of Muhammad, was killed by the forces of the second Umayyad caliph. Family members accompanying him were killed or subjected to humiliation. The commemoration of this event during the yearly mourning season, with the Day of Ashura as the focal date, serves to define Shia communal identity.
