Ali Ebn-e Hamze Mosque


علی بن حمزه


Ali Ebn-e Hamze Mosque lies in central Shiraz and was built in the 19th century after the previous shrines had been destroyed by earthquakes. Then they separated the areas for males and females. It is also known as Imamzadeh-ye Ali Ebn-e Hamze. It is the tomb of Emir Ali, a nephew of Shah Cheragh who also died here while he was on the way to Khorasan to help Imam Reza. He is one of the disciples of Imam Reza.










The shrine building itself has a beautiful blue dome. Highlights include the eye-catching bulbous Shirazi dome, dazzling Venetian mirror work, stained-glass windows and an intricate, ancient wooden door. In the shrine there is a courtyard with tombstones, where people who paid large amounts of money were buried. . Unlike some other shrines, the caretakers here are very welcoming of foreigners; women are supplied with Chadors and photography is allowed.
