Eram Garden (Persian: باغ ارم, Bāgh-e Eram) is a historic Persian garden in Shiraz, Iran. The garden, and the building within it, are located at the northern shore of the Khoshk River in the Fars province.


It is unclear when construction of the gardens began, however historical evidence suggests that the gardens were built during the Seljuk Empire (11th-14th centuries) under the rule of Ahmad Sanjar.[1]

Today, Eram Garden and building are within Shiraz Botanical Garden of Shiraz University. They are open to the public as a historic landscape garden. They are World Heritage Site, and protected by Iran's Cultural Heritage Organization.
