A nice and quiet place, where the last resting place of an old famous Sufi poet is. Many people from all over the world come here daily to pray for him. His words have been read by our elders even in their educational days. May Allah raise their ranks and help us to follow their advices.
One thing I really want to mention and inform to all of you here after visiting this tomb in May 2022. Kindly be careful of those security guards who are on duty at the main gate outside who do not issue the ticket to you after taking the money from you and put this cash money directly in their pockets. I don't know how much money they are making every day like this. Management should also take notice of this. This was personally happened with me for 2 tickets.

we went there at night and everything seemed dreamy. I love the underground pool they have there and they say if you throw a coin in it your dream may come true. we went there with our tour leader from a travel group named elegantpersia and he gave us lots of information about the poet saadi and read a beautiful poem for us while we were there.

A famous Persian poet, Saadi, is buried here. Plenty of Iranians come to pay their respects to a beloved poet and there are verses of his work inscribed on his tomb. Without knowing the poet, tourists may get less out of this than others, but it is still wonderful to see how much the Iranians treasure their spectacular literary heritage.

Sadi is a great Persian poet and prose writer, and his octagonal mausoleum is located in a vast beautiful garden. you can see the verses of Sadi's poems on its wall.
Dont forget to drop coin in pools and make wishes, it will be a pleasant experience.
there is also an ice cream shop across the garden, it is suggested to try its delicious ice cream and Faloode Shirazi.

The Tomb of Saadi is a must for poetry lovers. Saadi is one of the literary men of the medieval period… You can read his poems, make a wish and throw a coin in the pool, see the old piscina full of fish, enjoy its beautiful garden... if you come :) The visit may take one hour

Saadi was a great Iranian poet, who lived roughly at the same time as Hafez. Both of them were from Shiraz and their tombs are located near each other. Unlike Hafez who spent most of his life in Shiraz, Saadi was constantly traveling. Two of his poem book remain: Bustan and Golestan, which contain spiritual and instructive poems. His poems are used widely in Iranian schools due to their literal simplicity. His mausoleum includes a hall with seven portals which show the stages of spiritual growth in Iranian mysticism, the tomb itself is located at the end of this hall. Next to the tomb there is an underground pool with lots of gold fish. Some people believe if you throw a coin in there while wishing and the big fish sees your coin, you wish will come true.
