Completed in 1590, the Fin Garden is the oldest extant garden in Iran. The settlements of the garden in its present form was built under the reign of Abbas I of Persia, as a traditional bagh near the village of Fin, located a few kilometres southwest of Kashan.
The garden covers 2.3 hectares with a main yard surrounded by ramparts with four circular towers. In keeping with many of the Persian gardens of this era, the Fin Garden employs a great many water features. These were fed from a spring on a hillside behind the garden, and the water pressure was such that a large number of circulating pools and fountains could be constructed without the need for mechanical pumps. The garden contains numerous cypress trees and combines architectural features of the Safavid, Zandiyeh and Qajar periods.
