Fin Garden in Kashan

It contains Kashan's Fin Bath, where Amir Kabir, the Qajarid chancellor, was murdered by an assassin sent by King Nasereddin Shah in 1852. Completed in 1590, the Fin Garden is the oldest extant garden in Iran.Designed for Shah Abbas I, this lush garden is renowned as being the very epitome of the Persian garden; it was recently added to the World Heritage Sites list. In the surrounding areas, water is scarce; inside the garden it flows with superabundance, channelled from a natural spring through a series of turquoise-colored pools and fountains and continuing on down the main road in jubs.
