Chehelsotoon Garden

Chehelsotoon  (چهل ستون) means 40 columns and is the name of a pavilion. If you count the columns however, you’ll be happy to count 20, but the name comes from the reflection in a long pool in the garden.  You will find battle scenes and frescoes of erotic topics. And you will see what zealots do to such frescoes. It is also a world heritage site of the UNESCO.
