Saadi Mausoleum

Sadie Mausoleum is in the north-east of Shiraz. Set in a pleasant garden, the present tomb was built in 1952 and replaces an earlier much simpler construction. Unlike Hafez, Sa’di traveled extensively in Iraq and Syria , where he was even taken prisoner by the Crusaders. Upon his return to Shiraz , Sa’di wrote his most famous works , the Bustan (The Orchard) and the Golestan (The Rose Garden) , which are moral tales written either in verse or in a mixture of prose and verse. Sa’di is said to have died in 1290 at the grand old age of 101.
