Pahlavanpour garden belonged to a very famous merchant from Mehriz named “Ali Pahlavanpour”. This garden was built at the end of Qajar's reign. According to the locals, Pahlavanpour family chose the location where the garden is located because of the flow of water through the "Hasanabad" aqueduct. Due to the use of different designs, it is evident that some parts of the garden were built during the Zand dynasty.
Passing through the main gate we notice a large number of fruit trees such as pomegranates, almonds, persimmons and etc. You may be wondering how it is possible to plant so many trees in a desert area like the one in Pahlavanpour garden, because the answer is provided by the water sources that are everywhere and are fed by the Hasanabad aqueduct. that runs through the garden. The garden consists of a complex at the entrance, a pavilion, a winter residence, a building for employees, a bathroom and a kitchen. The garden entrance includes a stable and a straw store. The two towers at the entrance date back to the Zand period. The architectural design is in a way that the pavilion is in the center of the garden, on the axis through which the flow of water passes. The pavilion is a work of art from the Qajar era and is designed on 2 1/2 floors. The interior part includes the pool room which is filled by the water from the aqueduct after passing through the center of the pavilion and flowing into the garden.
