History and culture of Mir Razi Al-Din Artimani Mausoleum
To know the history of this Mausoleum, it is better to take look at this prominent poet’s life:
Mir Razi al-Din was born in 1570 and lived in Artiman. Then as a young man, went to Hamedan to study religion. In the year 1592 AD, he traveled to Isfahan, home of poetry and literature masters at the time, and gained a high position in the court of Shah Abbas Safavid. He later married Shah Abbas’s daughter. After many years, he finally returned to his hometown. Mir Razi al-Din departed this life in 1627. His tomb building is located on top of this hill. One of his most important works is “Saqinameh” and “Sogandnameh”.
His previous tomb was destroyed over time. In 1975, some Persian architects started to reconstruct the building under the National Monuments (Cultural Heritage) supervision, which took two years of work to complete.
Architecture of Mir Razi Al-Din Artimani Mausoleum
This structure consists of four arched entrance doors with exquisite tiles on top of them. The facade is built of brick and has an opening with a high arch. Behind these arches is a building with a tiled entrance. The building is square in shape and on the outside, there are three rooms that are repeated on four sides. The dimension of the building is 10 by 10 meters and with a height of 6 meters. The exterior part of the building attracts attention on all 4 sides in the form of 3 arched openings with a simple brick texture, and in the vicinity of each of the walls, 4 brick walls in the shape of a column are built. These columnar walls are connected at the top by a gable-shaped brick arch. You can see three narrow and beautiful arches on each side with a harmonious composition that has given a mystical effect to the structure. In addition, the inner part of the tomb has simple, yet spectacular brick decorations, in the middle of which is the tomb of Mir Razi al-Din with a metal tablet containing his biography. The tomb is about 40 cm high in a square frame.
