About Pahlavanpour Garden

Pahlavan Garden was built in the Qajar era, and in 2011, it is registered as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites along with eight other gardens. It is famous for the streams that run through the garden, making it a relaxing and refreshing place for visitors. Tall plane trees surround this lively stream from both sides and give a heavenly view to this garden. Also, the fruit trees of the garden include pomegranates, almonds, and persimmons, and the planting of these trees reflects the relatively cool climate of the region due to the high heat of Yazd province.

Pahlavanpour Garden’s architecture reflects the changes in the style of ancient Iranian gardening compared to today’s common gardening. The garden comprises an entrance complex, a palace (Kushk), a winter building, a bathroom, and a kitchen. Besides, the main water axis flows into the other two axes, where the orchard is beautifully landscaped, meaning that the trees are planted on the margins of these two streets.

The entrance to the garden consists of towers, stables, and arches. The decorations of the tower are similar to those of the Zandiyeh period, although the date of construction of all three listed buildings is related to the Qajar period. The most beautiful is the Kushk or Sharbatkhaneh, which is located on the main axis of the garden.
