Delgosha Garden: A Famous Garden in Iran's Shiraz
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Delgosha Garden is one of the historical gardens in Shiraz, south of Iran, near Tomb of Iranian poet Sa'adi and it belongs to the pre-Islamic era of the Sassanian Empire. It enjoyed prominence during the reign of Safavid kings.
Renovated during the Qajar dynasty, the garden takes on a more beautiful appearance in spring because of its blooming tangerine trees.
It is in an orange grove near Boustan Avenue, which leads to the tomb of Sa'adi. The orange trees are healthy and the central pavilion is fine. But much of the garden has been insensitively modernized with concrete paving and blue painted water channels. Some of the walks are lined with cypress trees.
The walk leads to a residential home, standing in the center of the garden dating from the land and Qajar eras. The building has a verandah supported by two monolithic pillars. Its facade is covered with glazed tiles and plaster moldings, its doors are fine examples of inlay work and mirror work, and there are some lovely paintings on wood with flower, shrub and bird designs.
