Aga-e-Karim is a citadel dominating the city of Shiraz. It’s a fortress built by the ruler of Zand dynasty, Karim Khan who had hoped that the citadel would rival the city of Esfahan. The imposing citadel was built with high walls and four circular towers of which the southeastern tower is leaning slightly due to the underground cistern that was served as the fortress’ bathhouse. Inside the citadel is a large, open courtyard filled with citrus trees and a pool.
