Sa'di Tomb (Sa'dieh)

Related to Shiraz city (located in Fars province)
Sa'di, a keen traveler and famous Gnostic, was a known poet of the 7th century AH. he was born in Shiraz and passed away between the years 695-691 AH. In 1942, the present building was constructed by the Association for National Arts and the tomb of Sa'di (The mausoleum of Saadi or Sadiyeh) was placed in an octagonal mausoleum with high dome and interesting tile works.

The grave is inside an octagonal edifice on top of which stands an amazing azure blue dome and inside the mausoleum all around the walls are inscribed with verses of Saadi’s poems. Inside the mausoleum yard and in front of the entrance of the tomb lies a beautiful pond. People throw coins into the pond so that their wishes would come true.

About Sa'di :
There is a piece of advice, in verse, printed on top of the entrance of the United Nations: Of one united body are the members of humanity For of one united essence they all have come to be If a member, by mishap, is brought into agony, The other members from suffering cannot flee.

Over 700 years ago, and before the Declaration of Human Rights, Sa'di, the Iranian poet, managed to sow the seed of unity into the heart of mankind. Sa'diyeh is the ecole of sagacity, wisdom and poetry, the tomb of the master of all words, Sa'di of Shiraz, the eloquent poet of Iran who lived in 13 century AD. His Golistan, The Orchard, with its melodious prosaic style, and its matchless content, has always been an inspiration for the present prose literature of Iran; he is also considered as a role-model guru of ethics by the Iranians. His other Magnus Opus is called Bustan, The Garden, and is written in verse. In the post-Sa'dian Iran, one hardly can find even one single figure of significance and influence left untouched and uninspired by him.

Every year, from each and every corner of the world, the people in search of wisdom and the enlightened souls come to Sa'diyeh to alleviate themselves with Sa'di, who is also referred to as Sheik-eh Ajal (lit. Master of Fate). He was titled “Sheikh” because of his knowledge and found followers who pursued his values and words.

Bustan & Golestan:
Sa'di's best known works are Bustan (The Orchard) completed in 1257 and Gulistan (The Rose Garden) completed in 1258.[14] Bustan is entirely in verse (epic metre). It consists of stories aptly illustrating the standard virtues recommended to Muslims (justice, liberality, modesty, contentment) and reflections on the behavior of dervishes and their ecstatic practices. Gulistan is mainly in prose and contains stories and personal anecdotes. The text is interspersed with a variety of short poems which contain aphorisms, advice, and humorous reflections, demonstrating Saadi's profound awareness of the absurdity of human existence. The fate of those who depend on the changeable moods of kings is contrasted with the freedom of the dervishes.

Persian Garden & Tomb of Sa'di:
Inside the gorgeous atmosphere of the garden, you can listen to traditional Persian music which is played in the garden and enjoy the relaxing environment of this monument. Across from the entrance of this garden, stands a traditional ice cream shopping stall which is very popular. Please do taste the ice cream and Faloudeh Shirazi (of Shiraz). After a walk for less than 5 minutes from Saadi Tomb, you will reach Delgosha Garden which is again one of the most beautiful Persian Gardens of Iran.
