Monument
A monument to a great Persian poet, Tomb of Hafez rises up from the banks of the Rukn-Abad River. The much-loved wordsmith was laid to rest in the surrounding gardens in 1390, his memorial constructed and renovated throughout the centuries. Placed within the lush gardens, the pavilion still maintains some of its 18th-century features, including all of its original columns. Uncover the work of Hafez through the engraved facades and marble tombstone, featuring a selection from his literary canon of over 600 poems.

  • Beautiful garden and historical place. I suggest everybody who comes to Shiraz to visit here, but not to buy ice cream from its coffee shop!
  • It's a nice park but it's to busy and loud for a mausoleum. May we were there just at the wrong time but they different music in the restaurant. I just missed a lack of respect but otherwise it's nice. The entrance fee was 200'000 rials.
  • Beautiful place! I was there quite late, and loved the place. It's full with Iranians, couples, friends, families, who enjoy the park. In the northwestern corner (among the graves) you'll often find men who recite Hafez poems. It's a really nice and serene experience. Scam warning; the cafe at the southeastern corner tried to charge me 300.000 rials for a cup of tea (!!!), after a fierce haggling I paid 40.000 rials, which is more acceptable.
  • One of the most serene places in the world. Visit at early ours in the morning, or late at night!
  • One of the worlds best poets has been laid to rest here. Pay your respects, read in the garden and drink some tea!
