The Sheikh Safi al-Din Khanegah or monastery in Ardabil is a Sufi spiritual retreat dating from between the early 16th century and late 18th century. It is the burial site of Safi al-Din Ardabili (b. 1252/3), the eponymous founder of the Safavid Dynasty and Sufism. The complex is a fine example of medieval Iranian architecture.
