  • I can’t describe the beauty of the atmosphere around Hafez tomb in simple words. You should go and sense it, connects it with his marvellous masterpiece “Divan e Hafez”. Tou can have a true Persian experience in this fabulous place where the art and nature blend together.
  • Hafez is in Iranians heart and soul! His poems come from the heart and are outstanding. If you're a fan of Hafez, you're going to love this place and if you spend the whole day inside you won't feel you've had enough ! and if you even don't know who Hafez was, you still going to enjoy your visit in this beautiful place, so it definitely worth a visit.

  • Poet Hafez Sherazi is another famous name in the world of poetry. It's luck of Shiraz that two famous poets Sheikh Saadi & Hafez Sherazi are burried on it's soil & both tombs are at few minutes drive away from each other. The tomb of Hafez is simple but it is intricately decorated with caligraphy & the ceiling of the structure is beautifully decorated with traditional mosaic blue color design. Enviroment is calm, & in the evening, beauty prevails more. Beautiful tomb having well kept garden, & calm atmphosphere are main feature of this area.
  • Magnificant landscape,positive vibe sorround every where,an Hafez Expert sitting next to the tomb,predicting your future by means of DIVAN HAFEZ the most well-known book of that incredible poet.
  • Hafez tomb is fantastic. The are some nice things in Handcraft exhibition. Traditional coffe shop is also good
