What Reminds You of Isfahan as a Garden City: Hash-Behesht Palace


“This palace is built in Safavid governing complex, and in the center of Bolbol (nightingale) garden in the early of Shah Soleyman’s kingdom in 1080 A.H. There are several stories for the naming of this place, one is the function of diamond shape structure in different sections of this pavilion such as rooms, pillars and the pond of central hall. The other is its beautiful and unique decorative art which is used in this site and makes it different from other structures. This once was used as a resting place of the royal families and kings of Safavid dynasty. Magnificent beauties of this place are the structures of the central hall that consists of sky light and decorative mirror art work, as well as three ponds with the names of Morvarid (pearl), Chehel Cheshmeh (Forty Springs) and Marmar (marble). Porches on four sides of this palace with wall paintings have decorative pillars and knotted ceilings with mirror work.”

This, again, is what Tourism Organism briefly says about this marvelous pavilion. There are definitely better and more detailed explanations and descriptions which I’ll post as soon as I am a little bit less pre-occupied. Yeah! It’s a promise, fellows!
