Iranian People Commemorate Renowned Persian Poet Attar

April 14 or Farvardin 25 in the Iranian calendar is the day to commemorate Attar of Nishapur, the Persian and Muslim poet, theoretician of Sufism, and hagiographer.

On this day, a group of people gathered around his mausoleum in the city of Neyshabour (Nishapur) in eastern Iran to pay respect to this great Persian-speaking poet.

The great 12th century Sufi poet Farid al-Din Attar is renowned as an author of superb short lyrics written in the Persian language.

Attar of Nishapur was not well known as a poet in his own lifetime, except at his home town, and his greatness as a mystic, a poet, and a master of narrative was not discovered until the 15th century.
