Abstract:   (2886 Views)
Dagh-Baghi is a disregarded garden located in Khoy, a city in the northwest of Iran. Because of its location along with good weather, Khoy has always had great potential to host many gardens. This garden, however, is the only remaining historic garden. The current Dagh Baghi is a meadow in the southern suburb of the city with a few fruit trees. This article studies the spatial structure of the garden and scrutinizes its current conditions as well as archived evidences in order to find the garden's original layout and specification. To achieve the goal, the study will focus on documents as well as study and survey the garden’s remains. Comparing the documents with the result of fieldwork research will clarify the garden's layout and its historic evolution. The garden was found by Amir Ahmad Khan-e Donboli, the commander of Khoy and Salmas in Zand dynasty. The obtained spatial structure reveals a designed terrace garden on a slopping land on a foothill which includes an avenue (Khiyaban) between entrance and a pavilion located at the end of the garden, on the highest terrace. The layout of the garden has been formed by six lawn covered terraces with some fruit trees. Two rows of plane trees define an avenue between a likely entrance hall and the highest terrace which has contained a mansion and a pool in front of it. The terraces have a line of plane trees on the edge and spring’s water flows down from the foothill into the main pool and run through a canal in the middle of the avenue. Except the water canal, the avenue has two pass ways beside the canal which connect the terraces by rows of nine stairs.
