Ali Ibn Hamza Holy Shrine is one of the historical and religious structures in the city of Shiraz. This Holy Shrine belongs to “Shah Mir-Ali Ibn Hamza Ibn Mousa Kazim”, which is located in Hafez street and near the Dried Lake of Shiraz. Ali Ibn Hamza holy shrine was built by Amir Azad ol-Dole Deylami during Daylamites era and parts of it were renovated during Teymourian era.
Ali Ibn Hamza was the grand son of the fourth Imam, Imam Mousa Kazim. In the 9th century (3rd century AH), he escaped to Shiraz from the kings of Safavid dynasty and hid in a cave. During the days he would gather firewood and brought to
“Estakhtr gate” in order to sell them and would buy food for his family with the money he earned from selling the woods. One day the guards recognized him by the mole on his face and beheaded him and sent his head to Baghdad and buried his remains in the current place, near the 18th century bridge. Azad o-Dole has made a mausoleum over his tomb.
Although the entrance to the mausoleum is old and worn out, but in terms of carvings, is an example of the artistic nature of the people of Shiraz. There’s an inscription carved on a red stone, written by Ibrahim Sultan, son of Shahrokh Teymouri.
