Nature from Arg-e-Karimkhani, Shiraz, Iran

Shadow and Highlight in Arg-e-Karimkhani


The Arg of Karim Khan (Citadel of KarimKhan, KarimKhan Fortress) is a citadel located in the north-east of Shiraz. It was built as part of a complex during the Zand dynasty and is named after Karim Khan, and served as his living quarters. In shape it resembles a medieval fortress.

At times, the citadel was used as a prison. Today, it is a museum operated by Iran's Cultural Heritage Organization.
