Notes[edit]

The more accurate Avestan for pardeiza is pairi-daeza, though some dictionaries have pairi-daēza, my source lists the former.[1] (if you can't read the Avestan script, just take my word for it ;-) ) Khiradtalk

Persian Gardens in the list of World Caultural Heritage[edit]

Now Persian Garden is Iran's 13th properties inscribrd on UNESCO's world heritage list. We read about it: The property includes nine gardens in as many provinces. They exemplify the diversity of Persian garden designs that evolved and adapted to different climate conditions while retaining principles that have their roots in the times of Cyrus the Great, 6th century BC. Always divided into four sectors, with water playing an important role for both irrigation and ornamentation, the Persian garden was conceived to symbolize Eden and the four Zoroastrian elements of sky, earth, water and plants. These gardens, dating back to different periods since the 6th century BC, also feature buildings, pavilions and walls, as well as sophisticated irrigation systems. They have influenced the art of garden design as far as India and Spain. for more info see: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1372

I see that gardens in India have been added to the list, a Persian garden doesn't have to be in Iran. Thus I have added the Generalife in Granada, Spain - it is a very genuine example, and a world heritage site. 24.108.58.1 (talk) 23:56, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
