Iran-Shazdeh Garden

The city of Mahan is located in the southeast of Kerman. At a distance of 6 km. from the south of Mahan, is a beautiful and large garden named “Shazdeh Garden” which is a rectangular green oasis surrounded by brown desert. “Shazdeh Garden” meaning Prince’s Garden is a historical Persian garden.The structure is relative to the Qajar era. There are various pools constructed in the garden that is sheltered with fine trees.
The garden was built for and during the eleven years of the governance of Abdolhamid Mirza Naserodolleh (during Qajar dynasty). The construction was left unfinished due to death of Abdolhamid Mirza in early 1890s.

The garden is 5.5 hectares with a rectangular shape and a wall around it. It consists of an entrance structure and gate at the lower end and a two-floor residential structure at the upper end. The distance between these two is ornamented with water fountains that are engined by the natural incline of the land. The garden is a fine example of Persian gardens that take advantage of suitable natural climate.
