Qasr Garden Museum is a part of more than 200 year history of Tehran, which used to be located outside the city limits when it was built. By political changes and new city requirements it changed to a frightening prison. Years of being a prison had remained a sad and dreary dream of Qasr Garden on the people’s mind. Qasr Garden is Tehran’s living history, converting that dark prison into a green and bright Garden- Museum was an attempt to valuate this heritage. Besides the historic value, this gar- den is a valuable and wonderful sample of Persian gardening which duplicates the necessity of noticing it
