Ali ebne Hamze

 Ali ebne Hamze shrine is one of the three Holy Shrines in Shiraz with truly amazing mirror-worked walls and dome. What differs this Shrine from Shah-e Cheragh is that everyone's allowed in and everyone's allowed to make pictures and video. 

From the outside, the Persian tile work is gorgeous. However, the true glory of this site lies within. The entire interior of this shrine is laden with intricate mirror work in ornate geometric patterns. It’s simply outstandingly beautiful and you could easily sit down and stare off into the splendor of it all for quite sometime. 

Though this is a relatively small mosque, it’s a gem that should not be missed.
