“Visit during sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We went there just before sunset (around 8:30 in July) and it was still open and quite empty. You skip the crowd if you go at that time and can better feel the serene and lonely atmosphere of the tomb. After visiting the tomb, go the the Green Mosque right across the street and watch the gorgeous sunset from the courtyard of the mosque.

It was a nice humbling experience to visit this tomb and to get a feel of life back then and also to remember death.
