Why is the Iranian garden in Tehran one of Tehran's most beautiful attractions?
With the advent of modernity in our urban life, it is difficult to find a place that gives a sense of Iranian originality and history.
Instead of villa houses with hexagonal ponds and goldfish, small and large apartments are scattered everywhere, and there is no longer the former big gardens and instead, urban gardens are the only refreshing places in the city.
Finding a new place that has a trace of the past, filled with Iranian ponds and fountains and surrounded by ancient and centenary trees, can be quite exciting.
The Persian Garden is right in the middle of the muddy alleys where you will no longer feel like walking in the modern capital.
You walk in the streets as if by every step you walk through history. You will soon see the Iranian garden in front of you and understand what we are talking about.

Getting to know the Iranian garden, a garden in the north of the capital
If you reach the alleyway of Vanak village, a large and beautiful garden attracts your attention.
The garden walls, fences, and entrances to the garden show its newness but just go near the entrances to see the old, towering trees that welcome you.
Entering the Iranian Garden, you will find a 3.4 hectares area designed with modern elements and symbols.
Running water in the ponds and fountains, flowers and the laughter and joy of families is something you will experience upon entering the garden.
It is good to know that the Iranian Garden is also known by its builder's name, the engineer Mohammad Ali Mokhtari, and you will see the name of the engineer in the garden.

How was the name of the garden selected?
By repeating the name of this garden, you may wonder why the title of the Persian Garden has been given to this garden.
Before any explanation, let's take a brief look at the Iranian gardens to see what they look like.
And what is an Iranian garden?
Looking at the history of the gardens of the world, we will see, from the old times that every land has designed and constructed its own style of gardens, and this includes our country.
Iran is one of the first countries to develop a special style for making gardens known as Iranian gardens.
Of course, the Iranian way of making gardens took different forms over time and in different periods, but overall when we look at the gardens of our land, we see three distinct and common features:
- Waterways with a large pond and fountain
- A mansion in the middle of the garden
- Symmetry in the design and structure of the gardens
In the structure of the Persian Garden Deh Vanak a set of these elements has been used, including the existence of numerous ponds and fountains, arched porches at the entrances and the use of flowers and plants specific to the Iranian climate.
Rows of Persian pine and cedar also emphasize the Iranian style of the garden.
