If you are so lucky that you cannot visit all the sights of Qazvin, if you only spend a few hours in this city, or for any reason, you can only visit one of the sights of Qazvin, I suggest you go to this complex.
After settling in Qazvin (as his new capital), King Tahmasb ordered the construction of a garden and a mansion; according to the Shah, prominent Iranian architects assembled and designed a garden called the Safavid Garden. . A mansion was also built, at the king’s request, and the palace was called the Fort Column or the Pyramid Mansion.
In general, the complex consists of several buildings, most of which have been demolished and some of them are currently under repair. The main area of the garden has 3 entrances, with only one of them remaining, called the Capo’s Great Loft. The exact location of the garden cannot be determined due to demolition and surrounding construction.
At present, the enclosed area of the Red Crescent and Prophet’s streets is called the Safavid Garden. The Cultural Heritage Organization is seeking to buy, rebuild, and rebuild the buildings that have encroached on the garden, which have been gradually demolished and destroyed. The schools currently located between the Pahlavi mansion and the Grand Hotel (two of these gardens) have now been purchased.
The Safavid Garden Complex consists of several buildings: the
upper courtyard of the Capo
Pahlavi Mansion and the Qajar Grandaleh Mansion
From the poems of Obaidi Bek Shiraz : The
realm of this shrine-shaped orbit has been scribbled on
two intersecting surfaces of two four-lane streets, two levels of clear- cut street- level

in another part of Abidi Beik Shirazi’s poetry:
Two-sided gingerbread on the rows of a new vegetable
on a two-sided barn raised on the sidewalk
between the tall two-headed wall on the
lush greenery and the pale yellow emerald tree
in the blissful garden of paradise reminds
one of paradise. In the royal house, the Most Merciful
Fatah Abad Garden
Fath Abad Gardens, located 2 kilometers from Kerman , is a model of Prince Mahan’s garden, one of the most important historical gardens in Kerman. This garden is one of the works of Qajar era and one of the relics of Fazl Ali Khan Biglobigi which is why it is also called Bigligigi Garden. Fath Abad’s water passage through this garden has given it a special refreshment. The construction time of this garden is about 2 years. The raw materials of the buildings were decorated with plaster and head in front of the pond in a 2-by-2-meter garden with beautiful fountains. In addition to the two-storey building, arches were built on either side. This courtyard with its beautiful architecture and eye-catching is on the verge of demolition.
Fathali Khan Gharabaghi, nicknamed Beglerbigi, built a magnificent garden and mansion outside Kerman during his two reigns and reign over Kerman (more than three years in total), which was also followed by Nusrat al-Mamalik II and Nusrat al-Mamalik. Therefore, the history of the construction of the garden and the magnificent Beylerbergi (Fatah Abad) building can be said to be between 5 and 6 AH at the time of Muhammad Shah Qajar’s reign. Fath Abad’s famous aqueduct that used to be one of the oldest and most famous aqueducts in Kerman to The mines have been watering the garden and its mansion. The Beigelbergigi garden building has been a model for Prince Mahan’s garden.
Yazd’s Dolatabad Garden
When you travel to Yazd , you can see numerous gardens in this city, one of the oldest of these gardens, which is very famous in Yazd , is Dolatabad. The Dolatabad Garden of Yazd, a reminder of the Afshariyyah and Zandiyeh periods in the heart of Yazd, was built in the year 6 AH by the great Khan of Yazd, Mohammad Taghi Khan Bafaqi, who was the head of the Khanin dynasty of Yazd.
The late Mohammad Taqi Khan first built a canal about 2 kilometers long and brought water from Mehriz to Yazd and the current location of the Dolatabad garden, and then built his government complex (Dar-ul-Huma). The garden, which has been around for five years, was the residence of Shahrokh Mirza and Karim Khan Zand, the contemporary rulers of the city. The Dolatabad Garden of Yazd is currently under the supervision and management of the Yazd Cultural Heritage Bureau and is run by the government body.
Dolatabad Gardens with an area of about 2.5 square meters include various sections such as the Eighth Building, the World’s Largest Windmill, Sardar Mansion, Paradise Mansion, Tehran Mansion , Mirror Hall, Double Crane Warehouse as well as Nasser Gardens. One of the most beautiful old Iranian gardens has been transformed.
In the green area of the garden, there are also fruit trees such as grapes, pine, cedar, berry, mulberry, orchid as well as ornamental flowers such as Mohammadi, Rose, Nastaran and Jasmine which make this historic garden more beautiful.
The Dolatabad Garden Complex has been listed in the National Heritage List of Iran in March 2007.
In the construction of Dolatabad garden buildings, materials such as marble have been used, and all the marble stones used in this garden have been supplied from Maragheh in northwestern Iran. Dolatabad Garden has two types of mansions that are known as Exterior and Interior Mansion.
The exterior or front porch located to the east of this garden includes Mirror Hall buildings, the Tehrani mansion, the main loft building, two markets, two watchtowers, a public water storage and a courtyard, and the inner mansion to the west of the garden includes Paradise Buildings Heavenly (winter) Heathrow (harem) Dormitory (kitchen) Crew rooms, summer and winter stables, house sheds and a private watchtower and water storage tower. The inner part of the city was the dominant place of residence.
The prismatic garden of Dolatabad, which is 4 meters high and 5 cm high, is the world’s tallest adobe brick that has ever been known in Iran and the world.
Night garden lighting is provided by lamps placed inside the lanterns, which are located at certain distances around the mansion, creating an eye-catching view in the heart of tourists who have traveled to this historic garden.
Dolatabad Garden is one of the oldest gardens in Yazd city in Iran and is one of the tallest adobe bridges in the world with a height of 2 meters and 2 cm. Mohammad Taqi Khan, famous for the Great Khan (1-6 AH), who was head of the Yazd dynasty of Zandiyeh at the time, first built a canal called Dolat Abad and then built the Dolatabad Garden Mansion along it. This building was also the residence of this powerful ruler. The building is a collection of several mansions: the Vault and the Windmill – the Garden of Miracles – the Hall of Mirrors – head to the main and head to the south.
The greenery of this garden includes: pine trees – cedar – Mohammadi rose – fruit trees especially grapes and pomegranates. The most striking feature of the windmill is that it is the world’s tallest windmill.
The collection is reminiscent of the Afshariyyah and Zandiyeh periods, which include the Sardar Mansion, the Paradise Building, the Paradise Mansion and the Hall of Mirrors, the Tehrani Mansion, the two-crater waterfall, and the Nasser Garden. The garden’s greenery has fruit trees such as grapes, cedar and pine, as well as roses and red flowers.
Each of the buildings in Dowlatabad has architectural features and major manifestations of the space required at that time. The “octagonal mansion” at the bottom of the main axis of the garden and attached to the south wall is actually the main kiosk of the garden and is famous for its high winds. It is the tallest windmill available in Iran. The mansion has three large rooms and a basement (with a marble integrated basin) in the middle. Its design resembles that of other Iranian koshkas, and the upper floor has a hall, a sofa and a parlor. ”
Water Turnover in Dolatabad Garden:
Water in Dolatabad Garden is more represented than any other Iranian garden and flows at all levels. In this garden we see the water sinking and re-erupting in different parts made possible by the laws of architecture.
In general, the following sections can be considered for the flow of water in Dolatabad Gardens: The
path of the water movement
The hidden path of the water movement of the
pond and fountain
Beneath the octagonal mantelpiece, the first place where water can be seen boils in a marble pond and rises. It then reaches a pond in the middle of the mansion, and from there it continues to the three rectangular ponds in the three garden dwellers. The water reaches the chamber in front of the chamber to continue its course and flows through three bushes. Kebaki chest is one of the clever techniques of Iranian architecture in the gardens and refers to the use of masonry stones in the atmosphere to show the water wave. The bell towers of Dolatabad Garden are made of marble and have been carved to create a wave that reflects the volume of water more than it actually is.
Where is Dolatabad Garden?
