  • Where is the tomb of Sadegh Hedayat?

    In answer to this question, I will take you to the Perlashes Monastery in Paris to see which Iranians are buried in this monastery.

    I will first introduce Perlashes; Perlashes is unlike any other cemetery in the world. The cemetery was built in the style of English gardens in the east of Paris, but has changed over time with the modernization of Paris. Now in this 44-hectare garden, there are about 5,000 trees and it is the largest park in the French capital. Every year, about 2 million tourists, plus Parisians, come to visit Perlas.

    Upon entering each cemetery in different countries, you will immediately see a sign that is placed for visitors. The piece number of people like Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde, Frederick Chopin could easily be found, but there was no news of Sadegh Hedayat and Gholamhossein Saedi, two famous Iranian writers buried in Perlashes Cemetery, and it made it difficult for me because no I had internet on my phone and no one knew where Sadegh Hedayat was.

      Polish musicians - Frederic Chopin

      Denon - The first director of the Louvre Museum during Napoleon's time

    And finally, after a long search in the large Perlashes environment, I found the great tomb of Sadegh Hedayat.It was interesting that on the tombstone of Sadegh, a picture of an owl was seen, which showed the popular and famous work of the blind owl.
