Fin Garden


Fin Garden, located in Kashan, Iran, is a fine example of an historical Persian garden.  Foundations for the garden were begun in the late 1600s under the reign of Abbas I of Persia.

  

The garden covers about 6 acres and contains a lot of water features.  The walled garden is a sharp contrast to the surrounding desert.  Surprisingly, all of the water is supplied by a spring located behind the building.

  While the garden's most notable features are the blue-green tiled canals, visitors will also enjoy the cypress trees, almond, apple, and cherry trees.  Flowers include lilies, roses, jasmine, violets, and tulips. The garden is open daily from 8 AM - 7 PM.

    1. It is a shame. The political climate is a deterrent for many people.
