'Attar Nayshaburi's Tomb (540-618 AH)

Its first construction was built by the supreme judge Yahya ebn-e SaŽed, one of the nobles of Neyshaboor. It fells in ruin in the Timurid period. Later on, a handsome mausoleum was installed on it by Amir Alishir Navai`, the sage minister of Soltan Hossein Bayqara. It was restored and completed thanks to the efforts of the National Monuments Society in 1962. Its tombstone is made of black headstone on which verses in thulth script are carved.
Owing to the great dignity of Attar, Cultural Heritage Organization has devoted its efforts to enlarge the Surroundings of the mausoleum. Its National Monuments Registration Number is 1173.10.
