  • very beautiful garden with amazing building in it also in museum you can see many weapon
  • ‪A great place to go with family great view and perfect place for taking good shots but restaurants a little expensive and no wide fast food options but good atmosphere for taking a good break form life ‬
  • Very nice place ,visit the winter piano of farrah
  • The garden itself is great place, beautiful lake in center of the garden just in front of a historical building that surrounded with tall Palm trees and flowers. The garden is managing by military because of a military museum located there and today July 2nd 2017 I was standing in front of garden from 3:30 (Opening hour) till 4:25 to open the gate which is a shame for military of Iran.
  • The garden is quite empty and overgrown, but the military museum has a lot of historical swords, pistols, muskets and rifles. The upstairs level of the palace shows a glimpse of the 20th century luxury of the Shah’s lifestyle and is interesting. The foreigner entry price of 200,000 rial (5.5 USD) is quite expensive for Iran.

Where to stay in Shiraz

The main bazaar district in the center of town remains the primary place to look for accommodations in Shiraz. Standard hotels tower over the public squares, and side street hostels offer particularly budget-friendly dormitory room stays. To the north of this central district, you'll find the most opulent options in town, with luxury hotels offering commanding views of traditional Persian gardens, swimming pools, and onsite fine-dining restaurants.
