2.5
#4 of 7 in Historic Sites in Tabriz
Feel the presence of greatness at Poets Tomb (Maqbaratol Shoara), the final resting place of notable Eastern poets throughout history. Situated in the middle of a large garden, the cemetery represents a quiet and peaceful place free from the noise of the surrounding city. The first tombs have been here for almost a millennium, but the mausoleum itself was built in the 1970s by a former secretary of arts and culture. Take a walk through the site and reflect on the mesmerizing architecture, characterized by grand arches, rose windows, and engraved poems. Among the poets buried here lie Asadi Tusi and Aziz Dowlatabadi.
