Pay your respects to the legendary Persian poet Saadi at Tomb of Saadi. Lush gardens surround the picturesque blue and white tomb, along with a few cafeterias out front selling traditional Iranian deserts, notably "shirazi faloodeh" and traditionally served ice cream known to be among the best in town. Inside, the tomb's walls have seven verses of Saadi’s poems etched into them, along with a small fish pond where locals stop to make a wish.

  • Saadi tomb is one of the most important places for Iranians and their traditions especially poetry. Nice garden with Mausoleum of Saadi. Unfortunately during the Nowruz very crowded but worth to see it. You can find a book shops with souvenirs from Fars province. Unfortunately like everywhere in Iran - tourists are paying 5 Euro, Iranians less than 1 Euro.
  • Beautiful architecture and land scape. Although designed almost 60 years a go it's accessible and barrier free for most of its places. Car parking is an issue though.
  • Even if you are not familiar with Persian literature and haven't heard of Saadi, you'd like the architecture of the tomb, it's garden and the traditional irrigation system passing through it. One of the top of my list whenever I visit Shiraz
  • There is a nice place, we took beautiful pictures there. I recommend everyone to see it there.
  • Now (April), Its time for travel to Shiraz. Here you feel you're in real paridice.
