During our visit to Iran in March 2010 we stayed in Tehran for most of the time and used it as our base to visit other cities such as Hamadan (Hamedan) which is about 400km south west of Tehran. We were only in Hamadan for one day and overnight and saw a couple of tombs while we were there and this is one of them, the Tomb of Ibn S?n?. The actual tomb is in the basement of the building.

Further info on Ibn S?n? below from Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avicenna

Ab? ‘Al? al-?usayn ibn ‘Abd All?h ibn S?n?, known as Ab? Al? S?n? (Persian: ?? ? ???) or, more commonly, Ibn S?n? (Arabic: ? ???) or Pour Sina, but most commonly known in English by his Latinized name Avicenna (Greek: A?????, Avitzianós), (c. 980 – 1037) was a polymath of Persian origin and the foremost physician and philosopher of his time. He was also an astronomer, chemist, geologist, Hafiz, Islamic psychologist, Islamic scholar, Islamic theologian, logician, paleontologist, mathematician, Maktab teacher, physicist, poet, and scientist.

Ibn S?n? studied medicine under a physician named Koushyar. He wrote almost 450 treatises on a wide range of subjects, of which around 240 have survived. In particular, 150 of his surviving treatises concentrate on philosophy and 40 of them concentrate on medicine. His most famous works are The Book of Healing, a vast philosophical and scientific encyclopaedia, and The Canon of Medicine, which was a standard medical text at many medieval universities. The Canon of Medicine was used as a text-book in the universities of Montpellier and Louvain as late as 1650.

Ibn S?n?’s Canon of Medicine provides a complete system of medicine according to the principles of Galen (and Hippocrates).

George Sarton, an early author of the history of science, wrote in the Introduction to the History of Science:

One of the most famous exponents of Muslim universalism and an eminent figure in Islamic learning was Ibn Sina, known in the West as Avicenna (981-1037). For a thousand years he has retained his original renown as one of the greatest thinkers and medical scholars in history. His most important medical works are the Qanun (Canon) and a treatise on Cardiac drugs. The ‘Qanun fi-l-Tibb’ is an immense encyclopedia of medicine. It contains some of the most illuminating thoughts pertaining to distinction of mediastinitis from pleurisy; contagious nature of phthisis; distribution of diseases by water and soil; careful description of skin troubles; of sexual diseases and perversions; of nervous ailments.

Some further info on Hamedan below from Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamedan

Hamed?n or Hamad?n (Persian: ? , Old Persian: Hagmatana, Ancient Greek: Ecbatana) is the capital city of Hamadan Province of Iran. It had an estimated population of 550,284 in 2005.

Hamadan is believed to be among the oldest Iranian cities and one of the oldest in the world.

Hamadan has a green mountainous area in the foothills of the 3574-meter Alvand Mountain, in the midwest part of Iran. The city is 1850 meters above sea level.

The special nature of this old city and its historic sites attract tourists during the summer to this city, located approximately 360 km southwest of Tehran.

The main symbols of this city are Ganjnameh board, Avicenna monument and Baba Taher mounument. People of the city are Persians and speak Persian.
