The good thing is that the color of its dome is turquoise among all colors, the color of its columns is brown and the tiles of its pool are blue. As soon as you smell the vases in the courtyard of Saadi’s tomb, or go to the pool to wash your hands or face, or even when you enter Saadi’s tomb to look at his tomb, your gaze constantly falls on the spectacular color of his dome.
In my opinion, the turquoise of the dome of Saadi’s tomb is beautiful and the most glazed turquoise in the world; Poetic gem on Saadieh ring in the heart of Shiraz. I know Hafezieh and Saadieh are rich Iranian architectures, but which one do you consider more romantic? Or between Tabriz and Shiraz, which are the cities of Iranian poetry, which do you see as more poetic?
I choose both for tourism purposes. For a minute though Bagh Eram , Delgosha Garden , Narenjestan Ghavam, Jahan Nama Garden, Vakil Bazaar, Vakil Bath, Nasir Al-Molk Mosque or even Hafeziyeh and leave it at Alibaba Tourism Magazine Read about Saadi Shirazi calming down, talk about this king, talk about this Sheikh Saadi, talk about Musharraf al-Din, talk about this master.

Know Sheikh Shiraz
Ferdowsi, Hafez, Attar, Rumi and Shahriyar each have a place, but Saadi Shirazi reminds us of poems that we have repeated over and over again. Yes, Abu Muhammad Musharraf al-Din Mosleh ibn Abdullah, whom it is better to call Saadi by the same familiar name, is one of the Persian orators, poets and writers, the scribes and dignitaries of Shiraz and Shiraz, and Iran and Iranians.
Be aware of when Saadi lived. It is exactly the seventh century AH and the Atabakan dynasties of Persia, Abbasids, Khwarezmshahis, Ilkhanids are the rulers of this century. The most prominent event that occurs in this century and reminds us all of the destruction of science and the burning of libraries is the Mongol invasion of Iran.
Birth and youth of Saadi Shirazi
Although there are differences in the date of Saadi’s birth and the time of his birth is estimated between 585 or 600 to 615 AH and the date of his death between the years 690 to 695 AH, but the mother of nature has made such a masterpiece with the birth of Saadi. That Iranians and the world have not forgotten his memory so far. He tasted the first bitter taste as a child with the loss of his father. On the other hand, the situation of Sultan Mohammad Khwarezmshahian, which is coming to an end, makes him angry that he wants to continue his education in Shiraz and travel abroad.
No one could stop him from the beginning of his youth. He spent 30 years of his life watching the world and went to the military in Baghdad to acquire literature, commentary, jurisprudence, theology and knowledge. After that, he traveled to Hejaz and Syria and finally chose Shiraz for eternal peace. But he saw the time to return there under the rule of Atabak Abu Bakr bin.
Imagine that Sa’di wrote his garden in 655 AH and Golestan in 656 AH when he was not stoned, and dedicated them to Atabak and Abu Bakr ibn Sa’d Zangi. How amazing that he devoted two years of his life to writing in the great book, and his memory is still alive. Now, for the rest of his life, what he had not done. The books of lyric poems and his satires have their place.
A man who spent his youth watching the beauties of the world and was not tied together, now his hair After 88 years in the world of art and poetry, he has turned white and you have to welcome old age in a corner of the monastery so that you may relax. I would like to say here that I may be more interested in the poems of Rumi and Shahriyar than Saadi’s poems, but it cannot be denied that we do not use the poems of this poet in our daily life and we do not learn life lessons.
O your love in the hearts, your love on your lips, your passion in your heads, your head in your souls
Until I make a covenant with you, I will break everyone’s covenant.
History of Saadi Tomb
Only a poet as great as Saadi could turn a monastery into a tomb like Saadi’s. Sheikh Shiraz lived in this place until the end of his life until he was finally buried. Now it is the turn of her lovers not to leave her alone. Shamsuddin Mohammad, one of the kings of the Ilkhanate period, built the first tomb of Saadi and his tomb to keep alive the greatness of Sheikh Shiraz, so that people would continue to remember him well. Although the ruler of Persia after a long time began to destroy the tomb, but Karim Khan Zand spends manhood and restores it.
The Qajars were defeated. It is also the turn of Ali Akbar Khan Ghavam-ol-Molk Shirazi to lay a tombstone for the tomb of Sheikh Ajal. The destruction and revival of Saadia continued until the Pahlavi era. Years passed and passed until Mohsen Foroughi from the Faculty of Fine Arts, together with Ali Akbar Sadeghi, designed a cubic tomb with a celestial dome in 1324 and built and inaugurated it from 1329 to 1331. Saadieh was finally registered nationally in 1353 or 1354.
Tomb Architectural Attractions
Saadia’s attractions may not be as impressive when viewed from a distance. But Saadi’s tomb is beyond all tombs with its tiling, Iranian architecture and inscriptions. Its beautiful dome of the sky, its courtyard the size of paradise, its pools the size of the sea, its porch the width of forty stones, its library of literature and its garden the fragrance of life, show only the more beauties of this tomb. Want to tell me about her other beauty? Shurideh Shirazi is buried in Saadi neighborhood.
Sections of Saadi Tomb
Saadi’s tomb has different parts.
You know that you can not go to see a building with Iranian and Islamic architecture and not see the courtyard and pool. It is impossible. In previous articles, I mentioned that courtyards and pools are inseparable elements of Iranian and Islamic architecture, whether in mosques, tombs or even some houses. As soon as you enter the lush paradise of Saadiya, flowers, plants, trees and grass caress your hands and the breeze of the pool caresses your face.
Obviously you know why this pool is called the coin pool. Just as the Italians toss coins in the Troy Falls in Italy to make their wishes come true, the people of Shiraz toss coins in the Saadiyeh coin dock because of their traditions and wishes.
If most tombs and mosques have only one pond, know that Saadi’s tomb will not be diminished. Two large rectangular ponds in the yard and a small octagonal fish pond are located under the Saadiyeh foundation, in which the water of the tomb aqueduct is poured.
The fish pond is so important to the people of Shiraz that no one wants to look left. I said left, I did not forget to say that this 30 square meter fish pond is located on the left side of Saadiyeh and according to some Shirazis, it has healing properties. That is enough for the people to touch the water on Wednesday night. His tiles are also from the master shooter in 1993.
The exterior of Saadieh with a travertine white color and red granite columns and the inside of the building with an octagon of marble show the Iranian architecture. A tomb where the soul is trapped in the chest. The exterior of Saadi’s tomb should not be damaged. You have to enter to see its beauties. This is where the glow of Saadi’s poems is engraved on the walls on your heart.
As soon as you enter Saadi, your eyes light up on the beauty of the porch of Saadi’s tomb with its 8 brown stone columns. These columns remind you of forty columns. A red granite porch that I fell in love with, along with inscriptions from Sheikh Ajal’s poems, surrounded Saadi’s tomb.
But Saadieh Library, which is located in the western part of Saadi Tomb in white, is one of the advantages of the tomb. The original books of this library reach 18378 copies and 15101 titles. Saadieh Library was established in 1351 so that lovers and fans of Saadi and his tomb can read a few pages of the books of this library.
