800 year old humans
When two great poets, Asadi Tusi and Qatran Tabrizi, were buried in this place, they named it in different periods of Hazira al-Shoara, Hazir al-Qadha, and Sorkhaq Cemetery, so that perhaps the memory of these worldly people for the art-loving people of Iran may be hundreds. , May be kept alive for thousands of years to come, but from decade to decade and century to century, poets, mystics and famous celebrities joined the ranks of Asadi Tusi and Khaghani Shervani until Hazira al-Shoara (the place where poets live) and the tomb of the poets (burial place). Became poets.

One of the interesting points of the Tomb of the Poets is that it is not limited to any boundaries and mystics, writers and poets from different places, whether in search of peace Most of them migrated to Tabriz due to their distance from various wars between the people, and after their deaths, they were buried in the tombs of the poets.

Tomb of Master Shahriar, Haidar Baba in the Tomb of the Poets
The brightest tomb I can see among all the tombs of the poets is the tomb of Seyyed Mohammad Hossein Behjat Tabrizi, nicknamed Master Shahriyar. Professor Shahriar was born in 1285 and went to Tehran to study various fields of music, religious sciences, medicine and medicine. Little by little, they recognized him with beautiful Persian and Turkish poems.
He returned to his hometown in 1332 and during his peak of fame, due to his long illness in 1367, he was buried next to the great men of the Tomb of the Poets. Took; A poet who has made me fall in love with Turkish and sometimes Persian poetry.
If I like three great Iranian poets, after Rumi and Roudaki, I am fascinated by Shahriyar. Some poets turn to poetry because of their criticism of the government, the state of society, and some because of the mystical atmosphere, but Mohammad Hussein’s love for him led him to the other side, Shahriar, to leave medicine and spend his life in Persian and Turkish poetry. Let. The prince commanded that he be buried in the tomb of his poet companions.
