“A Must See Place in Shiraz”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

Sa'adi, one of the most famous poets of Iran from 12th century, he's well known for his deep moral thoughts and anyone can learn lessons of life by reading his outstanding poems. His tomb, is a beautiful garden with a lovely atmosphere you'll love visiting , specially if it's not crowded. If you know him and have already read his poems, you'll just love this place. Overall, this place is a must see for anyone who travel to fabulous city of Shiraz.

“World traveler Sa'di”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

I am personally a big fan of sa'di. Having read both his books golestan and bostan, it was an a dream come true to visit his tomb. I could feel the divine aroma inside the tomb. Also there is a small spring with lots of fish in it besides the tomb, which as per folklore has been there since sa'di's times.
