About Tomb of Shah Shuja
Tomb of Shah Shuja is located on the northwest of Hafeziyeh in Shiraz. In 786 A.H., before his death, Shah Shuja willed to be buried in the lands of Musalla beside the tomb of Sheikh Mahmoud Kotb Uddin and then to be moved to Medina by Amir Ekhtiyar Uddin Kermani to be buried there. However, after his death, because of the disputes arose among his successors, his will was not fulfilled and his tomb remained in Shiraz. In 1960, a dome of turquoise tile was constructed on his tomb. The building of tomb is constructed on a platform three steps above the ground. Four oblique pillars of white stone reach the dome from four corners of the platform. Four nasta'ligh inscriptions of poems by Shah Shuja and Hafez are inside the dome and four nasta'ligh inscriptions of poems by Hafez that have been written in praise of Shah Shuja on the outer side of the dome. Next to the tomb, there is a brick building which is currently used as the library of cultural works and figures. Tomb of Shah Shuja has been registered as a national monument of Iran.
