The Delgosha Garden is one of the historical gardens in Shiraz and is located in the area of Sa’di’s Tomb. The history of this garden dates back to pre-Islamic times and the time of Sassanid rule.
The Delgosha Garden was at the height of the prosperity in the Timur-e Gurkani period, where it is said that Timur, after seeing it, built a garden with the same name in Samarkand. This garden was also very famous in the Safavid era, so that the name of this garden is abundantly mentioned in the writings and paintings of the European tourists of that time.
Between the Nadir Shah period and the Zandy dynasty, the garden suffered a lot and was restored at the time of Karim Khan Zand. The garden mansion was built in the architecture style of the Sasanian palace of Bishapur, which is composed of a hall with four alcoves. This mansion has three floors and a porch with two columns.
In Safavid dynasty, Delgosha Garden was one of the most famous gardens in Shiraz. Some of the buildings in this garden were constructed in Qajar dynasty. Most of the trees in this 7.5 hectare garden are citrus such as Orange and sour orange. The main building which has three stories with two entrances in two sides and a porch in the middle floor with a view of pool is a sign of glorious days. The Sa’di’s Tomb Canal is passing through this garden.
