It's a citadel. Has beautiful orange tree courtyards. It was once a prison. I liked the bath house (hamam). Don't miss visiting it.

The Arge Karim Khan is an interesting place especially as it has just one door for entrance and exit. Intersting to note the one tower that are leaning over. The highlight is the orange grove filling the whole courtyard. Lovely to sit and enjoy the shade.

More of a mongol style than other buildings in Iran. Directly in the centre of things in Shiraz. A nice structure and some nice buildings/rooms inside. Must see and central to other sights. Good atmosphere directly outside worth lingering to relax afterwards and watch Shirazis go by or stop for a chat.

This citadel has been wonderfully restored (as the photos throughout show). Apart from the bathhouse, there's not a lot to see.

Walls are huge and when you walk inside, you are greeted by a fountain then a bathhouse to the left hand side and some chambers. Good to see some comparison photos of before restoration and what it looks like now....only a few places to actually see so not much inside the fort..it was nice to walk around the premises of the fort and to play a quick football match with the locals before leaving.
