Sa’adi Tomb Comprehensive Guide!

Shiraz is an ancient city full of the fragrance of life that is famous for its cradle of rich poetry and literature. If you want to travel to this beautiful city, we suggest you head to one of Shiraz’s most spectacular sights called Sa’adi’s Tomb. Of course, the sightseeing in Shiraz would not be complete without seeing Sa’adi’s tomb. The tomb of this great Persian poet is located in the vicinity of Delgosha garden near one of the mountains of north Shiraz and its relaxing atmosphere attracts great Sa’adi lovers every year. Visiting the tomb you can experience different moments in the vicinity of his tomb that, after many years of his death, his lovers are still willing to sit with him over his mausoleum to commemorate him. Walking through the relaxing atmosphere of Sa’adi’s Tomb, located on a beautiful street in the city of Shiraz called Bustan, you will encounter a world that speaks to you about Persian poetry and literature. You can also visit the pleasant garden, which is decorated with beautiful trees and plants. Like Hafizieh, Sa’adiyeh is part of Shiraz’s birthplace and authenticity, and its astonishing edifice fills the heart of every viewer with passion and love. The 257 meter-tall building is set in a beautiful garden, with the turquoise blue and blue tiles used in its façade to play right into the eye. The garden is approximately 10395 meters wide and decorated with Iranian orchards. Mohsen Foroughi, an Iranian designer and modernist, believes that there should be no apparent connection between the work and its history, and is inspired by Iranian architecture and literature to design the latest structure in Sa’adiyah. Earlier, Sa’adieh was built on the orders of Karim Khan in a luxurious and two-story building, which was repeatedly restored and rebuilt in later periods. Such glorification, honored by the belief of the Shiraz people in the healing of the water of the Sa’adi pond, especially on Wednesday night, indicates that Sa’adi had a high position not only in Persian poetry, travel writing, and rhetorical techniques but also in the hearts and souls of these people. It has also conquered the wall. In the past, people used to wash their clothes in the basin to wash. Even nowadays, the Sa’adieh Basin, which draws from the ancient and sacred Kariz of Shiraz, is respected by the people. The holiness and reverence gave by Sheikh Ajal Sa’adi Shirazi to this part of Shiraz’s birth certificate.

Traditional Architecture Sa’adi Tomb

Sa’adi loved traveling. He studied in Shiraz and Baghdad and then made a long trip to Mesopotamia, the Levant, Hejaz, and North Africa, returning to Shiraz after much experience.

The courtyard’s structure

The primary building of Sa’adi’s tomb dates back to the Persian Atabakan period and was first observed by Moroccan Ibn Battuta around 750 AD. This place was originally the home of Sa’adi, who spent his late-life there and then was buried there. For the first time in the seventh century, a tomb was erected over the Sa’adi tomb by the famous minister of Khawaja Shamsuddin Mohammad Sahebdivani. In 998, by the order of Jacob Zulqad, the ruler of Fars, the Khanate of Sheikh was destroyed and no trace of it was left. In 1187, on the orders of Karim Khan Zand, a two-story building known as a stucco building of plaster and brick was erected on top of Sa’adi’s tomb. During the Qajar period, it was restored by Fath Ali Shah and a few years later Habibullah Khan ordered Qawm al-Molk to repair and repair part of the building. The building, built during the time of Karim Khan, was erected by the year 1327 AD and consisted of a two-story brick building consisting of several rooms and the lower floor was one meter taller. The present tomb was built by the National Association of Artists on the order of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and was officially opened in 1331. The building was built with an adaptation of forty columns of Isfahan and other old buildings with the new architecture.
