عنوان مقاله [English]
City of Kashan is located in north of Isfahan province, between the Karkas Mountains of Natanz and the Great Salt Desert; where vegetation is inappreciable and bushes and shrubs are slight. Kashan has a warm and dry climate and in accordance with that, some structures, titled Khane-Bagh (house-garden), have been designed which contained a building with fruitful and unfruitful trees at its opposite side and a stream between the building and garden. Nowadays most of Khane-Baghs have destroyed and only few of them remained empty and almost dilapidated here and there. Lajavardi Khane-Bagh is the only structure of this kind that despite of alterations and modifications, has survived firm and steady is now employed as the cultural center of Fayz Kashani.
