Stone Garden: Iran's Most Amazing Garden

TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Although Kerman is truly an astonishing area due to unique ancient, historical and natural sites, here is an attraction which is neither historical nor natural but equally bizarre!

Stone Garden: Iran's Most Amazing Garden

You may never imagine a garden which its harvests are hard stones ranging from few grams to about 10 kilograms!

Half a century ago some farms in a village of Sirjan became dried due to local misleading, that caused Darvish Khan, a deaf mute honest farmer to protest his discontent by creating a stone garden himself.

He implanted dried bodies of the trees on desert holding heavy stones hanged by wires! Any stone and tree relates a special memory of his last forty years.

Darvish Khan passed away at 2005 and buried in his garden, but elaborately piercing and lifting heavy stones is still a mystery which never discovered due to his silence.
