Arg of Karim Khan
Arg of Karim Khan (Karim Khan Fortress) is one of the Zand monuments in Shiraz which was once used as the living quarters of the founder of this dynasty. The fortress combines military and residential architecture in its design. The residential part of Arg of Karim Khan included a small garden, fountains, iwans (rectangular halls, walled on three sides and with one end entirely open), and rooms covered in delicate wall paintings. The military part of the monument consisted of four fortress towers and a moat, which served as a defense mechanism.
