Photographer's Note

I remember this garden fondly for i met a renewed Iranian photographer and his less known photographer friend and from both i got contradictory advice on how to take a quality shot.I enjoyed the encounter and then proceeded to take my own photo of Bagh-e-Dolat Abad.
i found it hard to tear myself away from this place as it had everything for the visitor- an interior resplendent with stained glass windows and superb domes as seen in my previous photos. And outside the extensive gardens offered shade from the tall trees and the soothing sound of running water.

Lonely Planet:

Once a residence of Persian regent Karim Khan Zand, this small pavilion set amid Unesco-listed gardens was built about 1750. The interior of the pavilion is superb, with intricate latticework and exquisite stained-glass windows. Itís also renowned for having Iranís loftiest badgir, standing over 33m, though this one was rebuilt after it collapsed in the 1960s.


I was moved to write a haiku remembering this place:

Clear water gurgling,
Wind tower stands tall and proud,
Pavilion gives shade.
