Imamzadeh Zanjiri

Imamzadeh Zanjiri (Chained Imamzadeh) is another mausoleum in Shiraz built by the Qajar lord Mirza Hasan Ali Nasir al Mulk. The dome of the mausoleum has extensive tilework and the inside shrine is made of silver. The Imamzadeh (direct descendant of a Shia Imam) was named Zanjiri because Nasir al Mulk would have suspected criminals chained to the shrine, if the chain broke it was considered proof of innocence and the suspect would be released. Imamzadeh Zanjiri is a protected National Heritage Site.
