Pahlavanpour Garden: The genius of Iranian art and architecture



Being registered as a chain UNESCO heritage site, the nine heavenly Persian Gardens are among the most beloved and iconic landscapes with their distinctive properties, picture-postcard views of water stream and the historic Persian pavilions. Lesser-known Pahlavanpour Garden which dates back to the late Qajar period is located in Mehriz in Yazd Province.  Pahlavanpour Garden has a special attraction due to its flowing water which originates from the famous aqueduct of Hassanabad.  On both side of the main runnel, there are old sycamore trees. The fruit trees of this garden include pomegranate, almond and persimmon. Planting these trees in spite of the excessive heat in Yazd province represents a relatively different cool climate of this region. In terms of architecture, Pahlavanpour reflects the changes of the ancient styles of Iranian Gardens towards the common gardens of nowadays. Uppersia suggests you to get great pleasure in visiting this green attraction while traveling in Iran.
