The Maqbaratol Shoara or “Tomb of Poets” in Tabriz, Iran is a fine model of exquisite funerary architecture. It marries Post-modernist and Moorish design elements that look breathtakingly beautiful, especially with the south end’s pool mirroring all its grandeur. Buried in the complex are the remains of the country’s most renowned poets, mystics, and scientists, including Asadi Tusi, the author of the modern-day Persian dictionary.
