Feen Garden the most notorious of Persian gardens
Fin Garden The historical Fin Garden is one of the most beautiful and characteristic Persian gardens. One of the first kings enjoying and wondering curiously at its beauty was Omar ebne Leithe-Saffari who resorted to various fruitless tests in order to discover its apparently magical and invisible source of endless water. He ascended to the throne in 825 AD. The former site of the garden is now known as Bagh-e-Kohneh (old garden) because in the early 11" century Shah Abbas ordered the garden to be rebuilt beside the Fin fountain about 500m upstream of the old one. Fin Garden has an area of 23700 square meters with tall cedars known as Kashi (Zarbin) cedars as old as 500 years. It is irrigated by the Soleymanieh fountain.
There are few people who have not visited Fin Garden at least one time. Fin Garden has lots of memories in heart, bittersweet memories. Unfortunately, whenever speaking of the garden with all of its beauty and coziness, it is associate with the cowardly murder of Amir Kabir.

Buyid Kings (1062-934) who were interested in constructing royal buildings did some construction of the garden, but during the Ilkhanate era (1353-2256) the old garden was renovated more effectively.
After the earthquake of 1574, by command of Abbas King, a new garden was built; the gateway and vestibule, central pavilion, Safavid Bathhouse, and the forts of the garden were built during this era. Unfortunately, after afghans attack in 1736, the garden lost its prosperity; but by command of Karim Khan Zand by constructing a mansion named Khalvat-e Karimkhani (the interior residence of Karim Khan of Zand) the garden again found its prosperity. The garden damaged again by the earthquake of 1778, but after the Qajar dynasty gained the power, the garden renovated again, by command of Fath-Ali Shah Fath-Ali Shah mansion, Hamam Bozorg (the great Bathhouse), Shah Neshin Hall, and the Windward mansion (the current library) were added to the garden at Qajar era.
