Eram garden

Bagh-e Eram (the Garden of Paradise): This is a large garden to the west of the city. It dates from the time of Qajars, when Mohammad Gholi Khan Illkhani ordered its construction; Mohammad Hassan, the noted architect, built the handsome two-story structure in it. In the center of the building is a gallery overlooking the garden and all around are various rooms, with orris and alcove and a beautiful hall of mirrors.
Facing the gallery is the main walk of the garden with small ponds bordered on both sides by fine cypress trees. The most beautiful of all the trees in this garden – and the most famous tree of Shiraz – is a lofty cypress named Sarv-e Naaz (the sweet cypress), which indeed, seems a work of art.
