  • This place is very popular among Iranians to pay homage to their most venerated poet. Every Iranian house has a Q´ran and, next to it, his Divan. Coming to Shiraz and not visiting the Tomb of Hafez wo...  more »
  • The Iran is probably the only place in the world where people throng in droves over the grave of one of their 4 poets. Assert that they are crying the poems of hafez as didn't write all the guides is quite exaggerated since the main activity of the Iranians and the Iranian as elsewhere is to take selfies. The place is charming in a nice Park and with a tea house.

  • The cradle of iranian poetry. Very nice garden with the tomb of Hafez. You should be there if you are in Iran. Remember to buy some souvenir with great poetry. It is timeless and everyone will find something for him. You can meet some young people who decline Hafez poetry. Unfortunately like everywhere in Iran - tourists are paying 5 Euro, Iranians less than 1 Euro.
  • A very beautiful and fantastic historical place. It have made by great architectures and have store for handmade gifts and books and have a cofe with delicious icecream and tea.
  • I think there is no one in the world who doesn't know about this great Persian poet. His poems are really magical👍🏻
  • Not very impressive and really not much to see. No translations in English, in case you want to understand a bit better what Hafez wrote. Too expensive.
  • Lovely, Romantic Hafez tomb. I suggest everyone on the world visit here... Lucky me, I'm here.
