About Jahan Nama Garden
Jahan Nama Garden is located in the northeast of Shiraz. It has been fully verdurous during Al-e Mozaffar and Al-e Injoo Periods. When Teymoor Goorkani stayed in Shiraz, this garden attracted his attention like other famous gardens of that time in such a way that he built a similar garden around Samarkand, his motherland, and called it Jahan Nama. This garden also has been verdurous and important during Safavid Period. It is the oldest garden in Shiraz which has been irrigated by the water from well-known river of Rokni which streamed across special areas of Shiraz, through tomb of Hafez, Haft Tanan, Qur'an Gate, tomb of Khajooye Kermani, Baba Koohi, Melli Garden, Gahvareh Did, and the National Library of Documents. Karim Khan-e Zand fenced this garden in 1185 A.H., built Kooshk Mansion in the middle of it and created beautiful avenues and a complete collection of trees around this mansion. The plan of this garden is built by Karim Khan-e Zand similar to Nazar Garden, which has four avenues with two small and two large fountains on both sides of it.
