“Needs Work”

This is one of several Persian Gardens that is part of a larger UNESCO listing. It's the least well kept of all of the gardens in the list. The plants are overgrown and not tended. The grass is unkempt. The flowers beds are full of weeds. Not all of the water features work. Certainly, if this is the only garden you have a chance to see, go. But the Fin Gardens in Kashan are so far superior it's like a different world.
