The Fin Gardens, traditional Persian garden

The Fin Gardens (Bagh-e Fin in Farsi) in Kashan are historical Persian gardens, witnessing the rise and fall of empires, assassinations and celebrations.

Built by the Safavid Shah Abbas I and developed by Shah Abbas II, the gardens are a great place to spend time walking through the numerous cypress trees and long water canals.

Amir Kabir was a prominent political figure and Prime Minister of Persia under the Qajar Dynasty and is referred to as Iran’s first reformer, being at the same time a declared opponent of the religious movement Babism, whose leaders were executed at his orders. Like all reformists in history he was ultimately killed in Fin Garden, where he had been in exile.
