Shiraz, Qasr-i Abu Nasr. Door-frame. Negative no. 2249. Ernst Herzfeld papers, Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives.

Shiraz, located in southwest Iran, is known as the city of poets, nightingales, and flowers. Shiraz is mentioned in texts and tablets dating from pre-Islamic times. Today, it is one of the most popular travel destinations in Iran. The late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century bazaars and homes of local rulers have been described by travelers, such as Pierre Loti, who often stayed there on their way to the pre-Islamic monuments. Herzfeld stayed several times in Shiraz, visiting the tomb of Hafiz and Saadi. These squeezes are of the Khatun Mausoleum, and Shah Da'i.
