We have a fantastic suggestion for visiting a marvelous garden with and ancient museum. It is Negarestan garden with old history.
Negarestan garden is amazing, beautiful aged trees all around the garden with a nice pool in the center covered by Water lotus flowers. There is two main building inside the garden: hall of Delgosha and hall of Ghalamdan, which are so nice.
Negarestan garden is located in Baharestan Square of Tehran and built in 1807 by Fath-Ali Shah Qajar. It was the first Iranian academic center for teacher training and it was school for promulgation of arts such as painting, sculpturing and other arts. In other way it was school of fine arts Kamal-ol-Molk, a famous Iranian painter.
