World Garden Background
Shiraz World View Garden also existed in the eighth century AH. This beautiful garden was located in the path of the blue sky at that time and for this reason its development has always been guaranteed. In all these centuries, the trees of the garden have been extremely green and fresh, and that is why it has been called the ornament of the world.
But Karima Khan Zand gave the ultimate glory to Jahan Nama Garden. Karim Khan ordered a fence around the garden and trees on both sides of the street leading to the garden. The mansion in the middle of the garden was also built by his order. This mansion has a polygonal roof and is considered one of the best examples of architecture of its time.
The outline of the world view garden with its marble pond and gardens is a view that will not be easily forgotten by anyone. This is also true of the greatest historians and Iranologists of history, and the beautiful description of this garden is found in many old historical books.
General architecture of the world view garden
Iranian gardens generally have several basic characteristics: a stream of water flowing through the garden, a garden house in the middle of the garden, and a large pond in front of the garden house. Shiraz World Garden has all these features and has provided them in the best way for visitors.
The water atmosphere that passes through the garden is a factor that promotes prosperity and It has provided the beauty of the garden all these years. The house in the middle of the garden is an octagonal mansion with windows all around it. And finally, the pool in the middle of the yard, the fountain of which has been left since ancient times.
World Garden Name
As mentioned, Jahan Nama Garden had its greatest glory and beauty during the reign of Karim Khan Zand. For this reason, the garden was also called Vakil Garden at that time. But during the period when Fath Ali Shah was the governor of Persia, its name was changed and this garden was called Jahannama. During the Timurid period, Timur Gurkhani was so in love with the world-famous garden that he ordered a sample to be made in Samarkand. That is why there is another world-famous garden in Samarkand, which is just as spectacular.
Gardens around the world’s beauty
If we look at the world view garden from above, we see four streets, both sides of which are covered with cypress and Portuguese trees. In one of these streets, a blue atmosphere is created that leads to the garden wall. The atmosphere is decorated with small fountains that add the audible sound of water to the beautiful view of the trees.
It seems that Karim Khan Zand was very interested in the number eight because the building and the garden were filled with symbols with the number eight, and mentioning them is not without merit. The first and most important of these symbols is the building in the middle of the garden, which is also called the Pergola Mansion. The octagonal roof of this building still stands after all these years. The facade of our building is covered with empty and unadorned bricks. However, some experts believe that this facade was previously decorated with tiles and stones, which the cruel hand of time has taken out of our reach.
In addition to the octagonal building, there are eight cypress trees on each of the garden streets. The high water atmosphere of the garden has eight sections, and each of these sections has eight small fountains. Considering that it is said that in ancient Iran, the number eight was a sacred number and was considered a symbol of luck and good fortune, it seems that the repetition of this number is not accidental.
Best time to visit the garden
May is the best month to travel to Shiraz and visit the garden. In spring, go to Jahan Nama Garden and get intoxicated by the unique aroma of spring orange and watching the soaring cypress trees. Beyond the cypresses, you can see the fresh and fresh view of the Zagros Mountains, which are and have been like a compassionate father behind the shelter of Shiraz.
At the beginning of spring, a variety of colorful flowers are planted in the garden to show their ultimate beauty in May. Even Hazrat Hafez could not ignore the beauty of this garden in spring and in his poems he mentioned this garden as beautiful and green.
Emarat Kushk Bagh Jahan Nama
Today, Jahan Nama Garden is at the disposal of Shiraz Broadcasting and may not be available to the public every day. But until a few days ago, the mansion was a museum that visitors to the garden could visit. In addition, Shiraz handicraft and souvenir shops were set up in the mansion, where visitors could buy a variety of handmade jewelry and snacks specific to Shiraz.
Another interesting thing about the mansion is its windows. Until a few years ago, the mansion had wooden windows that surrounded the building. But the private owner of the garden replaced the windows with iron ones in order to restore the building. Many antiquities and architecture experts believe that this change is aimed at destroying the visual appearance of the building and iron has no place in the type of pavilion architecture.
