Known as Darvazeh Quran, located at the entrance of the city of Shiraz, the beautifully built Darvazeh Quran, was the place where two huge Qurans, known as the Hefdah-man Quran were kept. All who entered or left the city had to pass through Darvazeh Quran, thus passing underneath the two Holy Quran. Most Muslims believe that if a man walks on the Holy Quran before he sets out in a trip, he will safely return home. The two Qurans are presently kept in the Pars Museum.
