4.5
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Kerman Province
Historical beauty melds with nature at Shazdeh Garden. Originally built in 1850 for Mohammad Hassan Khan Qajar Sardari Iravani, who was part of the Qajar royal family that ruled Persia, the garden provides a stunning contrast to its desert surroundings. The garden features a myriad of color from the varieties of cedar, pine, buttonwood, elm, and fruit trees. A rectangular wall surrounds the garden with two buildings on both the east and west sides. Numerous water fountains stand throughout the garden and play an important role in its irrigation.

    It's a beautiful garden situated in the South of Mahan. Getting there is easy. Shahzade garden is on the slope of the hills surrounding Mahan. It's a beautiful oasis with beautiful trees. It's got nice fountains. The garden has two main buildings which are separated from each other by ponds. These ponds are going up. They head towards the mountains. So they look like a beautiful cascade.The first building is very simple. The other one is simple, too. But it's much more beautiful.

    A very beautiful historical garden in the middle of an steppe at the verge of Mahan town. You find a very pleasant weather in the garden even in the hottest days of summer. It is a usual destination for picnic for folks of Kerman.
