(Persia Digest) – The Iranian Embassy in Sarajevo in its twitter page posted a picture of a historical caravanserai in Sarajevo the walls of which bear the quatrains of the famous Iranian poet and mathematician Omar Khayyam.
“Khayyam's quatrains inscribed on the walls of Morica Han historical caravanserai indicate the high position of the Persian language and literature among the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” the embassy wrote in its twitter account.
Morica Han caravanserai was built in 1551 CE during the rule of the Ottoman Empire.
Omar Khayyam Neishabouri (born 18 May 1048 and died 4 December 1131 in Neishabour, northeastern Iran) is a renowned Iranian philosopher, astronomer and poet. Although Khayyam's scientific position is higher than his literary one, his quatrains have brought him international fame.
