Bagh-e Shahzadeh is located at a distance of 35km southeast of Kerman city and a distance of 6km from Mahan Town. It stands on Kerman-Bam roadway near Jupar highlands. Bagh-e Takht-e Shahzadeh (Princeâ€™s throne or flat garden in Farsi) is 5.5 hectares, rectangular shaped with an approximately 4.6% slope. The garden stands on a vast, open terrain which is encircled by far-off mountains on two sides and a high fence separates it from the harsh environment surrounding it. In particular, high Jupar mountains provide an eye-catching background landscape for the garden.
Rayen Castle was inhabited until 150 years ago and, although believed to be at least 1,000 years old, may have foundations from the pre-Islamic Sassanid era. According to the old documents, it was situated on the trade route and was one of the centers for trading valuable goods and quality textiles.
Bam and its Cultural Landscape: Bam is situated in a desert environment on the southern edge of the Iranian high plateau. The origins of Bam can be traced back to the Achaemenid period (6th to 4th centuries BC). Its heyday was from the 7th to 11th centuries, being at the crossroads of important trade routes and known for the production of silk and cotton garments. The existence of life in the oasis was based on the underground irrigation canals, the qanÄts, of which Bam has preserved some of the earliest evidence in Iran. Arg-e Bam is the most representative example of a fortified medieval town built in vernacular technique using mud layers (Chineh ).
