  • 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.
  • >one of the most famous poets of iran whose written great two books : Golestan and Boostan
  • Sheikh Saadi is famous poet & writer among Muslim countries including my country Pakistan. His "Bostan" & "Gulistan" both books are read by a large number of readers includung men, women, & students. Hence, if person has no interest in poetry but still he knows Sheikh Saadi because of his famous moral Hikayats/stories. So, if visitor who visit Shiraz & if he knows Sheikh Saadi then he can't resist himself to visit his tomb/grave. Same was the case with me, I visited Shiraz because of Sheikh Saadi, Hafez & few other sacred Shrines. Tomb of Sheikh Saadi is in outskirt of Sheraz. It is big in size having garden in it too. Neat & clean. Calm atmosphere. Always busy with lot of visitors. Wonderful place to come & pay tribute to this famous poet.
