Sulaymaniyah spring is the most important water source for farmlands and gardens of fertile plain of Fin. This spring gushes forth from the rocks of Dandaneh and HaftKotal mountains (located in the southwest of Kashan) and flows near to the historical Fin garden. Apart from the gardens of Small Fin and Great Fin regions, it supplies HasanAbad, Latehor and DarvazehFin. Different narratives about the age and appellation of the spring have been related in texts and written sources. Sulaymaniyah spring, which its water is shared between gardens and farmlands of Fin and Kashan by traditional and native science and techniques, has an outstanding role in economic boom of the region; not only it has led to more agricultural products, but has given rise to greenness of the Fin region and its pleasant weather which caused the surrounding gardens of Fin to be main local promenades.
