Mausoleum of Sa’di

Aramgah-e Sa’di

While not as popular as Hafez’s tomb, the Aramgah-e Sa’di and its generous surrounding gardens are appropriate for a man who wrote so extensively about gardens and roses. It’s a tranquil place, with the tombstone housed in an open-sided stone colonnade built during the Pahlavi era. Nearby is an overpriced underground teahouse set around a fish pond that is fed by a qanat.

Aramgah-e Sa’di

It’s easy to visit the tombs of both Hafez and Sa’di in a single afternoon. From Golestan Blvd, near the tomb of Hafez, take a shuttle taxi four squares southeast (US$0.30) to Sa’di tomb.
