Tomb of Hafez, Shiraz

4.3
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.

    During May is the best time to visit Shiraz, and Hafez shrine is the place you cant miss. Also if you don’t know Hafez, you’ll enjoy the place. Garden and the architecture will attract you.  more »

    This place is so attractive and we enjoyed visiting here. There are lots of shops inside the tomb that you can buy some handicrafts.  more »

    At the garden tombs of the poet Saadi and Hafez, wonderful Persian poetry - sounds from the mouth of the tour-guide soft and devotedly.

    "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.
