Garden

Most historical gardens in Iran have a mythological background. In fact, the English word ‘Paradise” derives from Old Persian pardis (“a royal garden”). The traditional Iranian garden is usually divided into four quarters by the intersection of two principal avenues. Noteworthy examples of this type are Hasht Behesht, Chehel Sotun in Isfahan, planted during the Safavid period, and Fin Garden in Kashan.

The finest of the Safavid gardens was Hezar-Jarib, which was situated at the end of Chahar Bagh Avenue on the south bank of the Zayandeh-Rud, but nothing of it remains. There are few true Iranian gardens in Isfahan today, but every house has its own miniature enclosure that usually includes some shade and small pool in which people gather when the weather permits. To Europeans, a Persian garden may at first seem disappointing. To appreciate it, it is necessary to contrast it with howling desert that is usually located outside the garden’s walls.
