  • Cultural experience - the gardens are nice to stroll through. We were a group on non-Iranians, though, so only spent ~15 minutes there. 
  • To foreigners it doesn't carry the meanings it has for Iranians. In this beautiful place you witness the love and reverence people have for the great poet. Read him. 
  • Hafez is the most popular poet in Iran, and you cannot deny his influence in the lives of Iranians specifically in "Hafez readings" or what is basically fortune telling. themes of his poems are the be...  more »

  • 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.
  • Not knowing much about Hafez before I went to this place, I still found it a very interesting place to be at. An oasis of quitness in this hectic city. Beuatiful to see how local Iranians come and pay respect to this icon of their history. My plan is definitey to get to know more about Hafez. Once back home, I am sure I will be proud that I have visited this place.
  • Awesome place to visit in Shiraz where you will find the grave of the main Persian poet, Hafez. The tomb itself is average but all around the atmosphere is just relaxing and enjoyable with many people sitting or drawing. Besides there is always music ongoing. Great place.
  • Here you can experience one of the most intresting aspect of the iranian culture: theyr love for this ancient poet is something surprising. Must be seen.
  • Amazing and peaceful place. Full of families out for an evening visit. There is a excellent café and craft shop too. Hafez is highly venerated in Iran and his poetry still lives in the daily lives of the people
