It's located in historic district in khoy. You can take a taxi and easily access to SHAMS TABRIZI TOMB in Blvd that named the same. I hope to have a great time in Khoy especially in Tomb.

This is a very historic place in Khoy. Its the tomb of Shams Tabrizi who was the spiritual teacher of Rumi. Not much is here but still its a very historic. There are English signs and poems but mostly everything is in Persian (Farsi).
