Fin Garden-Bagh-e Fin of Kashan

Postby Parvaneh » Tue Dec 17, 2013 8:27 am

Introduction: Fin Garden, or Bagh-e Fin (Persian:باغ فین )
Fin Garden is located in southwest Kashan, Isfahan province. Its reputation is due to a historic event that happened there.
Qajarid Premier Amir Kabir was murdered in a plot hatched by Nassereddin Shah’s men in the Fin Bath-house in 1852.
Fin Garden has all the elements of Irani-an gardens. It is somehow similar to Shaz-deh Garden in Mahan, Kerman, the Persian daily Iran wrote.
Spread over 23,000 square meters, the garden has good water resources. It com-prises a central yard, fortification wall and cylindrical towers.
Cedar trees, dating back to 500 years ago, surround the garden and its ponds. Fin Garden has 579 cedar trees and a number of sycamore trees.
There is a water mill on the left side of the garden, which still works.

Historicity
Fin Garden dates back to the rule of Safavid King Shah Abbas. Even some documents attribute it to Al-e Bouyeh era.
Since Amir Kabir was killed in the bath-house of Fin Garden, a majority of people consider the garden as a Qajar monument.
Remnants of an old garden exist hundreds of meters from Fin Garden. This garden was built during the Il-khanid Era.
The structure of the current garden pertains to the Sa-favid Era. Soleimanieh Spring supplies water to Fin Gar-den, which has been designed by Ghiaseddin Jamshid Kashani.

Other Safavid kings such as Shah Safi and Shah Ab-bas II also implemented measures that helped expand the garden.
Its gateway and mansion were built during the Safavid Era.
Safavid King Soleiman ordered the construction of a platform around Fin Spring. Therefore, its name was changed to Soleimanieh Spring.
The National Museum of Kashan was established in Fin Garden much later.
The Safavid mansion is located at the center of gar-den. Also, there is Qajarid mansion at another end of the garden.
An alcove was added to the garden’s monuments after the end of Safavid Era.

Other Features
There is a two-story building at the en-trance of Fin Garden. The first floor in-cludes an entrance hall. There is a salon on the second floor that offers a good view of the garden.
There are paintings from the Safavid Era depicting hunting grounds and descend-ants of a king.
Fin Garden is well-known for its sev-en ponds. One of the ponds, located in the southern part of the garden, has 160 trenches, 80 of which are for water entry and another 80 are for water exit.
Fin Garden has two bathhouses: a small and a large one. Both of them are located in the southern part of the garden.
The small bathhouse dates back to the Safavid Era and the big one pertains to Qa-jar Era.
The bathhouses in Fin Garden attract the largest number of visitors mainly due to the assassination of Amir Kabir in one of the bathhouses (the small one).
Fin Garden was listed as a national heritage in 1935 and registered on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 2011 along with eight other Iranian heritage sites

The six and a half acre garden in Fin, a suburb outside Kashan, captures the Soleimaniyeh spring and directs it into a geometric layout of watercourses and pools, framing various small buildings and garden plots. Although a garden was in place much earlier, the standing buildings are from the Safavid and Qajar periods. Safavid constructions include the exterior wall and monumental entrance portal, the central pavilion, and a small bathhouse - famed as the site of Amir Kabir's murder. A larger bathhouse and a library were built during the Qajar period.

Re: Fin Garden(Bagh-e Fin) of Kashan

Fin Garden located in Kashan, Iran, is a historical Persian garden. It contains Kashan's Fin Bath, where Amir Kabir, the Qajarid chancellor, was murdered by an assassin sent by King Nasereddin Shah in 1852. The settlements of the garden in its present form was built under the reign of Abbas I of Persia (1571-1629), as a traditional garden near the village of Fin, located a few miles southwest of Kashan. The garden has been developed further during the Safavid dynasty, until Abbas II of Persia (1633-1666). It was highly recognized during the reign of Fath Ali Shah Qajar and has been considerably expanded.


The garden covers 2.3 hectares with a main yard with dimensions of 120m×140m Approximately 1.7 hectares in area has been allocated for the main yard. This main yard is the most important part of the garden and has been surrounded by four ramparts and towers which have been constructed in the joining points of the ramparts.


In keeping with many of the Persian gardens of this era, the Fin Garden employs a great many water features. These were fed from Soleimaniyeh Spring on a hillside behind the garden, and the water pressure was such that a large number of circulating pools and fountains could be constructed without the need for mechanical pumps. The canals are lined with blue-green tiles, a color which contrasts wonderfully with the desert outside the garden walls.


The garden contains numerous cypress trees and combines architectural features of the Safavid, Zandiyeh and Qajar periods. Unfortunately as of late, due to the harsh climate and lack of proper maintenance, many of the trees in the garden are growing at a slower pace and some even dying. The sad thing is that while the age of some of these trees is as much as 400 years and continued to grow naturally at a healthy pace during this time, it’s the more recent improper care that has caused much of the problems for these trees. Changing the soil and its accompanying pH or burying fertilizers 1 meter deep in spite of cypress trees only using the initial 40 centimeters depth of soil (and as a result damaging their roots) are some of such acts that have contributed to their demise.


Both a small and a large bath are present while their ceilings are adorned with paintings and fine marble columns. The smaller bath has gained historical fame due to the assassination of Amir Kabir there.


A museum has been erected in the western part of Fin Garden, which houses archaeological finds from Tappeh Sialk, Choqa Zanbil, Hassanlu, Khorvin, and Lorestan.


On 2007, 8 September, Fin Garden has been submitted to the Unesco's World Heritage List.

Fin Palace and Garden of Kashan

Postby Parvaneh » Mon Apr 07, 2014 7:40 am

This garden is located to the south of the city of Kashan and near the village of Fin. The same was constructed on the former structures of the Al-e-Booyeh era. Its general layout and aqua system has been rendered special attention. This vicinity gained fame due to the murder of Amir Kabir, the reputed nationalist and Prime Minister (Grand Chancellor) of Nasereddin Shah Qajar. Amir Kabir was assassinated in a small bath here in the year 1268 AH. by the order of the Shah. This garden is a relic from the Safavid period, and has remained such for centuries due to the capacity of water it gains from the Soleimaniyeh spring. Today, this water flows into the 'Lasegah' pool after meandering through this beautiful garden, and providing water for the surrounding areas. The structures of this garden are the entrance and its facade, tower and ramparts, the Safavid and Fathali Shah sections, chambers for the elite, the museum on the western side of the premises, the large and small bath and the library in the eastern sector of this garden.
The covered construction housing the Shah Abbasi section is in two floors, this being in the center of the garden and opposite the grand facade. The construction of the same was completed in the year 1226 AH. Here, there are beautiful paintings and an inscription worked with plaster in the 'nastaliq' script. In the vicinity of this garden, several monarchs such as Shah Safi, Shah Soleiman, Shah Tahmasb, Shah Abbas, Karim Khan Zand and Fath Ali Shah have all contributed in the repair or making addition to the structures on the premises. However, these structures witnessed plunder in the early period of the constitutional revolution.

Fin garden has an ancient date. Some historical resources mention that this magnificent garden dates to Alebooye periods, but the dreadful earth quake happened in 982A.D and caused the garden Buildings to be ruined completely, then in 1000 A.D. it was reconstructed by Ghiyasodin Jamshide Kashani and by the order of Shah Abbas II. This splendid garden consists of buildings, such as; portal, numerous ramparts, Safavid siphons, Ghajari siphon, small bath house, royal bath house, Karim Khani's private building,and King's living room.
Fin garden is a perfect pattern of Iranian gardens architecture in which the numerous buildings along with swimming pool, small and big foot-bathes and the fountains inside it originated from Soleimaniyeh spring, so it gives a magnificent view.
Among the most important events that happened in this garden is the murdering of Mirza Taghi Khan (Amir Kabir) in garden bath house.

Bagh-e Fin

Postby Parvaneh » Sat May 03, 2014 7:54 am

Bagh-e Fin
Bagh-e Fin is located a few kilometers southwest of Kashan, in the small village of Fin. This is one of the most famous gardens of Iran. This beautiful garden with its pool and orchards was designed for Shah Abbas I as a classical Persian vision of paradise. The original Safavid buildings have been substantially replaced and rebuilt by Qajar dynasty although the layout of trees and marble basins is close to the original.

This gorgeous garden with remains of its two story palace is a pleasant spot to relax in the shade. This palace is also notorious as the sight of the murder of Mirza Taghi Khan known as Amir Kabir, chancelor of Naser o-Din Shah of Qajar in 1852.
