The garden was used as the residence and the place for hosting the guest and doing the official works of the governors. The main plan of the garden has a root in the Iranian art of architecture and is fantastic to visit. Magnificent sash windows, stunning plaster works and tall oak trees on the both sides of the entrance will amaze any visitor. There are many tall pine trees on both sides of the main street.

One part of the building was built in the “Zandi” era and the other in the early part of the “Pahlavi” era.
