Built by one of the prominent architects of Shiraz, the late Abolghasem Mohandesi, Minoo Garden belongs to Pahlavi period and is located on the west side of Khayyam Street in Shiraz. It was registered as one of the national monuments of Iran on September 1, 2003. It belonged to one of the benefactors of Fars province, the late Mohammad Namazi. Although the architect was influenced by European styles, all the Iranian features can be seen in the garden and the building. Inside the building, the interior and exterior spaces are not built in the style of Qajar Dynasty, but have a rather modern design. At the time, experts and officials expressed concerns about what was happening to the garden by the removal of a period of Iranian architecture if construction took place.
Minoo Garden is one mesmerizing garden which dates back almost 80 years. The green space of this garden with its unique arrangement has a pleasant vibe. You can also visit the building located at the heart of the garden and get a sense of what a modern house looked like during Pahlavi Period.
