Another one of religious places in Shiraz is a tomb known as Seyed Tajadin Ghareeb, which is located near Kazerun Gate neighborhood and Sibouyeh Boulevard. The original building was built some years before Qajar Dynasty came to power. The entrance of this tomb has an eye-catching, colorful tile-work which tells the story of the martyrs of Karbala and the events of that period along with paintings of flowers and birds. You can also see a signature dated 1884, which is the year when the tile-work was completed. The beautiful dome of this tomb has a short stem and turquoise tiles placed on the top. The doorways are beautifully decorated with engraved calligraphy. There is also a magnificent lattice above the door.

You can feel the connection of nature to this place. Beautiful and lush trees such as willow, sycamore, and eucalyptus planted in the yard, have created a relaxing view. Passing through the porch, paved with black marble, stands the main entrance of the Shrine of Seyed Tajadin.

In a Nutshell

History can tell a lot of things about one’s culture and values. Seyed Tajadin Ghareeb would certainly impress you with its beautiful Islamic architecture, the art of color palate on the tiles, and the appreciation for mother earth.
