Who are Shirazi poets?

Shiraz is most known as the literature and culture center of Iran mostly because of two great poets of this city, Hafez and Sa’di. Sa’di who was a traveler visited a great part of the world. After returning to Shiraz, he wrote his two masterpieces. Hafez, being praised by Goethe, is the most famous poet of centuries. Spend time at their mausoleum and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere.


Shiraz history?

Shiraz the cultural capital of Iran was once the political capital during the Zand dynasty (1747-79).

This city with more than 1,500,000 inhabitants situated in southwestern Iran, inland around 200 km from the Persian Gulf, at an elevation of 1,800 meters above sea level.



Shiraz gardens?



Shiraz Bazaar?




About 50 km. Northwest of Shiraz, at the foot of the Rahmat Mountains, one encounters the vast platform and remains of Persepolis, the grand ceremonial Capital built by Darius I (Darius the Great) and his successors some 2500 years ago. Archeologists are still combing through the debris and ashes that have covered Persepolis since Alexander the Great destroyed it in 330 BC. Most of the structures have already been revealed.



Pasargad is located about 77 km away from Persepolis. It was built by Cyrus the Great. Among the interesting sites at Pasargad is a stone platform of 80 m. long and 18 m. wide. It is believed to have been the foundation of a palace. Close by are the ruins of a building called the Prison of Solomon which was probably a fire temple.


The most important monument in [[Pasargad]] is undoubtedly the tomb of Cyrus the Great. It has seven broad steps leading to the sepulcher, which measures 534m. in length by 531m in width and has a low and narrow entrance. When Alexander the Great looted and destroyed Persepolis, he paid a visit to the tomb of Cyrus. It is recorded that he commanded Aristobulus, one of his warriors, to enter the monument. Inside he found a golden bed, a table set with drinking vessels, a gold coffin, some ornaments studded with precious stones and an inscription of the tomb, which reads:


“Passer-by, I am Cyrus the Great, I have given the Persians an empire and I have ruled over Asia.

So do not envy me for this tomb.”
