  • Garden is pretty basic. There is a traditional bath, a coffee house and a mansion for visit. Interesting.
  • The Golshan Garden is one of the oldest gardens in Shiraz. During the Safavid dynasty, it was used as a palace by the Safavid Kings. The current main building was constructed by Mirza Ali Mohammad Khan Qawam II in 1863. He bought a nearby qanat to water his garden. After his death, the garden was eventually inherited by Afife, thus being called "Afif-Abad". In 1962, it was restored by the army. It now functions as a weapons museum.
  • Beautiful garden with a nice collection of guns.
  • A palace that belonged to kings of the past inside a a garden. It includes two museums now: museum of classic military weapons with lots of interesting classic weapons and museum of lesson. Traditional tea-house and bath are among other parts of this garden to visit.
  • Great garden and great museum of weaponry. One has to try it! :)
