Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • There's the mausoleum dedicated to the poet and various other burials. Small garden, admission price too expensive if commensurate to what is.

  • Today by shiraz hiked to the Tomb. Ticket costs for tourists 20000T what I for a garden with many find a tomb. Garden is not special, many Iranians and no Western tourists. Nice trip, but not a must in Shiraz.

  • View the area around the Tomb, such as the area with the beautiful glassware. For many Iranians, this is a special place. In the shop you can also buy a poetry book, nice souvenir.

  • Interesting only if you like Hafez. Otherwise just nice architecture. Expensive
  • Hafezieh tumb is the best place for visit in shiraz city ,i offer to visit hafez tumb in night or middle night & read hafez poems.
  • "The small man Builds cages for everyone He knows. While the sage, Who has to duck his head When the moon is low, Keeps dropping keys all night long For the beautiful rowdy prisoners." Hafez, 14th century poet.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Shiraz

The main bazaar district in the center of town remains the primary place to look for accommodations in Shiraz. Standard hotels tower over the public squares, and side street hostels offer particularly budget-friendly dormitory room stays. To the north of this central district, you'll find the most opulent options in town, with luxury hotels offering commanding views of traditional Persian gardens, swimming pools, and onsite fine-dining restaurants.
