History of Pahlavanpour Garden

There is a story about the garden : there were two gardens fifty years ago that were separated with a stratigraphic wall. These gardens belonged to Mr Hassan MollaAlireza (Mr Ali Pahlavanpour's father - in - law) and Mr Pahlavanpur (Mr Ali Pahlavanpour's father). The wall was removed when Mr Ali Pahlavanpour got married and the two gardens combined into a single garden belonged to Mr Ali Pahvalanpour who was a well-known merchant.

Architecture of Pahlavanpour Garden

It is interesting to know that the garden's plan is divided as following: 1. Entrance complex (a tower, a stable, and a haystack); 2. Belvedere building or pantry; 3. Winter mansion; 4. Caretaker building; 5. Bathroom; and 6. Kitchen.
We pass the entrance of Pahlavanpour Garden including a tower, a stable, and a haystack. However the decorations of the tower resemble Zandy Style, the main mansion of the garden was built in Qajar era.

Let's go to the most elegant part of the garden that is belvedere or pantry building located in the center of the garden . The belvedere was built in two mezzanines with the area of 1500 m2 and includes a spring house, a hall, and earrings. Hassan Abad Qanat water passed through the belvedere entering the garden. 
One of the most exquisite parts of the building is the pavilion which is decorated with Karbandi ceiling. There we can find a kitchen, a warehouse, and a bathroom next to the belvedere building which was dug up recently.
Just in front of the belvedere building, there are two streams through which Hassan Abad Qanat water passed. On the bank of these streams, there are green stout sycamores creating alluring atmosphere in the garden.

Hassan Abad Qanant water flew continuously through this 5- hectar garden making Pahlavanpour Garden more beautiful, green and delightful. Moreover, water of ShahHosseini Qanat and Mazvir Abad Qanat entered the garden watering the trees.
Interestingly, that the garden had 16 water shares which watered it every twelve days. The interval of each water share took long for 10 to 11 minutes.

Pahlavanpour Garden

Pahlavanpour Garden includes 10 suites, three of which own orangery. The traditional suites with modern facilities are ready to receive visitors.
