Shiraz, Iran

My second card from Iran....

Shiraz is the 5th most populated city in Iran, and the capital of Fars Province. It is located in the southwest of Iran, on the Rudkhaneye Khoshk seasonal river.

What you see on the card is the Hafez Tomb. Hafez was a Persian mystic and poet. His lyrical poems known as ghazals are noted for their beauty and bring to fruition the love, mysticism, and early Sufi themes that had long pervaded Persian poetry.
Unfortunately very little credible information is known about his life.
