Just as Stratford-upon-Avon in England is synonymous with Shakespeare, so Tus is inextricably linked with Persia’s 11th-century epic poet Abulqasim Ferdosi, whose sturdy 1960s stone mausoleum mimics the 6th-century BC tomb of King Cyrus at Pasargadae. Add in some ancient city-wall remnants and the mysterious Harooniyeh and Tus makes an easy, do-it-yourself day trip from Mashhad.
