Description

partial view
partial view of Pavilion of Shah Abbas and water canal
The six and a half acre garden in Fin, a suburb outside Kashan, captures the Soleimaniyeh spring and directs it into a geometric layout of watercourses and pools, framing various small buildings and garden plots. Although a garden was in place much earlier, the standing buildings are from the Safavid and Qajar periods. Safavid constructions include the exterior wall and monumental entrance portal, the central pavilion, and a small bathhouse - famed as the site of Amir Kabir's murder. A larger bathhouse and a library were built during the Qajar period.
