Saadi Tomb 

Saadi died in 1291 at the age of 100.  He asked for the following inscription on his tomb:
"From the tomb of Saadi, son of Shiraz - The perfume of love escapes - Thou shalt smell it still one thousand years after his death."
Those who come to visit these gardens of rest briefly place two fingers on the flag-stone of their favorite poet as a gesture of tribute.
