This beautiful garden was first founded 7000 years ago alongside the Solomon's Spring,thousands years later with a lot of stories,...with its pool and orchards was designed for King Abbas I(1588-1629).
The original Safavid buildings have been substantially replaced and rebuilt by the Qajar dynasty although the layout of trees and marble basins is close to the original.

The garden is also notorious as the sight of the murder of Mirza Taghi Khan known as Amir Kabir,the chancellor of Nasser-al-Din Shah, Iran's King in 1852.

The earthquake of 1778 leveled the city of Kashan and all the edifices of Shah Abbas Safavi,leaving 8000 casualties.

Here is the Secondview of the building in the shot that was built almost in 1600(400 years ago).
