Well, only classical and contemporary poets, mystics, and other notable people are allowed in this place! As a corpse of course. No one exactly knows how old is this cemetery, but about the building, Tahmaseb Dolatshahi, the former Secretary of Arts and Cultures of East Azarbaijan, built Mausoleum of Poets in 1970s.
