Mahallat's Famous Spring Garden - Sarcheshmeh

By Syma Sayyah, Tehran

 

During our recent trip to Mahallat, we had a great time when our driver, who came from Isfahan and knew the area, took us to see and enjoy the (cold) spring garden (baghe cheshmeh or Sarcheshmeh), before we headed back home to Tehran.

 

 

I liked this garden a lot because it was a 'Persian garden' for me where all kinds of people go to sit, relax and spend a pleasant time alone or with friends and family as it should be.  We have some pictures here for you to enjoy and hope you will be able to visit when your travels take you to Mahallat.

 

 

If you would like a list of places to see when you go there please check this site for good information you could find it at:  http://www.iccim.org/English/Iran/markazi/index.htm
