Inn Babawayh cemetery, Ebn-e Babveyh, or Ibn-e Baabevey [1] (Persian: ابن بابويه‎) is located in Iran in the town of Rey (now inside Greater Tehran metropolitan area).

The cemetery is named after the most famous occupant, Ibn Babawayh (d.991 CE) a famous scholar of Shia Islam. He taught in Baghdad and lived in Rey at the end of his life. His works (more than 300 volumes) are used as valid sources in Jurisprudence. His most famous book is Man La-yahzar al-faqih. He died in 381 A.H. and his tomb is in Ebn-e Babooyeh.[1]

Many Iranian giants of sports, literature, arts, culture, religion, and politics are buried there. The reason for this is Rey being a Shiite pilgrimage site because of the Shah-Abdol-Azim shrine, which led many pious people to be buried near to this place.
