Sheikh Safi Al-Din Ardabili Shrine

A lot of people and history experts believe that the Safavid era has been one of the most celebrated and flourishing periods of Iran’s rich and proud history. During the Safavid Empire the country was at the forefront of great and lasting revolutions. The Safavid dynasty was in charge of one of the most powerful and respected empires of the time, and their rule has been considered by most as not only a beginning for Iran’s modern history but also a major focal point in the Muslim history as the Safavid kings made Islam the country’s official religion. But where does the Safavid Empire get its name from? Come to Ardabil Province in Iran and pay a visit to a beautiful shrine and you will certainly get more than the mere answer. Sheik Safi Al-Din Ardebili’s Shrine has been one of the most popular Ardabil tourist attractions and a great place to provide authentic insight into the origins of one of the most powerful dynasties in the world.

Safi Al-Din was a charismatic follower of the Sufi order. Eventually, he assumed the leadership of Zahediyeh which was an important Sufi Order in Gilan, and since he was an influential and prolific character, the Safaviyya Order was established in his name. Sheik Safi Al-Din who wrote very powerful religious poetry transformed a small group into a growing religious movement which, after his death, spread out of the great Persia all the way to Syria and Asia Minor as well. The leadership of Safaviyya changed hands until it was ultimately designated to Shah Ismail who built the foundations of one of the most powerful dynasties in the region which would later be known as the Safavid Empire.
