This garden is one of the oldest gardens of Shiraz that used to be perfectly cultivated before the raid of Timur Gurkani; and Arab-Shah, a historian during the reign of Timur, has called this garden Zinat ad-dunya (the adornment of the world).
Jahan Nama Garden was also considered of much importance during the Safavid dynasty. It is also mentioned in Jean Chardin’s travelogue. But after the fall of the Safavid dynasty when insecurity took over the country, the garden was almost ruined.
By the beginning of the reign of Karim Khan Zand, it was rebuilt and the mansion was constructed in the middle of it. Karim khan put a fence all around the garden in 1150 AH and built beautiful paths around the mansion and planted many trees there.
Also after the safavid dynasty, during Qajar times, Jahan nama Garden was known as one of the glorious, cultivated and green gardens and its mansion used to be the place that housed the guests of the government. In Jahan Nama Garden, all kinds of cedar, pine, citrus and fruit trees can be seen.
