I had the saying translated by a language-savvy Iranian friend on my return and was very inspired, fulfilling the original purpose of this nice custom!

The tomb is in musalla gardens, inside an open pavilion surrounded by eight tall columns of white stone, covered by a canopy of copper leaves, shaped like a derviche hat. The bottom of the dome forms a mosaic of colored tiles. For the Iranians, this tomb is a real sanctuary. It was built 60 years after the poet's death, at the behest of the king and suffered repairs with the change of the ages of kings over the years. The current buildings erected in 1935 are in place of other previous buildings, whose best known was built in 1773. The tomb, its gardens and the surrounding monuments dedicated to other great characters, are a tourist focus in Shiraz. Admission to this location costs around 6 euros.

I met with some Iraqis friend too, they were an Iraqi family with four or five children, at all Tomb of Hafez is a collection of good memories to being with deferent foreign friends from different nationalities, as I told some of my experience's. In conclusion in one sentence"as a citizen of Iran, Hafez Tomb is the best symbols of peace and friendships for me"
