Mostly I am not interested in places like museum specially when it looks like a store . Unfortunately when I visited that place there was a big construction around . Couldn't see much of the building outside , didn't like inside either .

Nowhere else to see, a monument sheltering a symbolic tomb of 400 poets situated in a Tabrizian park. Interestingly, there are many Iranian visitors which may shed light on the historic and present role of poetry in Persian society. Worth seeing, especially by those interested in studying foreign cultures.

I would suggest travellers to visit there in order to find out about azari literature and culture, specially shahriar, one of the great poets. His poems are in persian and turkish.

It was under renovation last month, so you cannot fully access it. If you are nearby, go there. It´s a landmark, but not that special.

Many poets who were born and lived in Tabriz have been buried here, the most famous of whom in Shahriyar. The place is really worth a visit because of both the special architecture of the place from outside, and the interior where you see the tombs. The only negative thing is that there is very little information written in English,... More

The poets tomb is a interesting superstructure with a museum in the center of it. Here a lot of poets who lived in Tabriz are memorated, and poems recited. Since there are no translations, its hard to appreciate for anyone not speaking farsi. Considering that, the 15000 toman entrance fee are to much.
