(Persia Digest) – Nowruz will be celebrated in Iran’s Versailles Garden for the first time this year in Ramsar, northern Iran.
Stands will be set up for handicrafts, cultural items, foods, and souvenirs from the province. Nowruz holiday-makers will be served free refreshments from 18 March to the end of the New Year’s holidays.
Live folk music, recreational activities, and local ceremonies will be held every day.
Persia Digest (PD) reports that the Versailles Garden in Ramsar, northern Iran, is known as such for the resemblance of its plans and geometric designs to the Palace of Versailles in France.
The composition of human, animal, and plant figures in the garden are influenced by the legendary characters of Ferdowsi’s epic “Shahnameh Book of Kings”, ancient Persian rock reliefs, and Western thought in the same era.
Most of the fruit trees in the garden are sweet lemons, citrons, bergamots, pomelo, satsumas, oranges, and grapefruits. Other important trees in the garden are conifers like pines and also various types of cypresses. Box trees, oaks, rush and alders are also planted here. The rest of the landscape includes decorative non-native species.
Unfortunately, this garden has been subjected to various changes in its buildings and surrounding areas during various historical periods.
