According to the available historical evidence, the background of the Tomb of Shams Tabrizi and the tower next to it date back to the Safavid period. Because the Safavid kings, especially Shah Ismail I, had a lot of devotion to this famous poet. In the descriptions on the wall of this minaret, it is written that one day Shah Ismail came to the Tomb of Shams Tabrizi after hunting And ordered to build a palace and three minarets next to the Tomb of Shams Tabrizi and to decorate the minarets with the horns of the rams he had built. Of course, one of the three minarets built in the same period of the Safavid dynasty was destroyed during the invasions of the Ottoman Empire along with the palace of King Ismail, and the other was destroyed during World War I And now there is one of these minarets that can be climbed by the public. But, there is very little space for movement on the stairs.
This is the only Tomb of Shams Tabrizi
Recently, due to attracting tourists from neighboring countries, Iran is building tombs for this Persian poet, which according to historical evidence, is the only Tomb of Shams Tabrizi and he has no other tomb. Mohammad Ali Movahed, one of the Iranian historical scholars, in his book called Shams Tabrizi, has collected historical documents and proved that Safavid kings used to visit the Shams Tabrizi Shrine every time they traveled to this region to oppose the Ottoman attacks. Every year since 2009, an international congress has been held at his tomb, in which famous Iranian and foreign artists participate, holding cultural ceremonies to keep alive the memory of this great Iranian poet.
