  • Hafez is a symbol of the hybridization of Iranian and Islamic culture. There's still a lot left to understand about this marvelous historic figure! Vive le Shiraz , The city of poets!
  • That's a must-see in Shiraz. The tomb itself isn't really the attraction, but the peaceful garden around it and especially the atmosphere of learning and appreciation which encompasses the place. There is a library in the back of the garden with lots of books on Hafez and other Iranian poets, which is a good place to read some of his poetry.
  • I want to see S hiraz and Esfahan.I think that these cities both having a mystic atmosphere.
  • visit it at night is better for sure.after sunset. Just a tomb so before visiting the place try to have some information about the poet then it will be fun visiting the place. Don't buy anything there,that is two times expensive than outside.I mean the bookstore.
  • it may be the most atmospheric place in Shiraz and many pilgrims came to the tomb for just show their respect to the famous Farsi Poet Hafez. Come here around sunset and you may meet some pilgrims who recite the poems.
