The Persian Garden, with a history of over 2500 years, is an art form that has influenced garden design from Spain to India. Together with the pavilions and other structures that are integral to these earthly depictions of Paradise, the Persian Garden has made significant contributions to world culture. The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is one of the only examples of this tradition in the Americas, and this talk will place it in the rich cultural context it so beautifully represents.
