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.

    In Iran they profess a special devotion to the poets. Hafez is one of the greats and his mausoleum is always full of people going to visit him and walk through the gardens that surround it. Something strange in our culture and it is curious to observe

    "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.
