Problem Statement: The revitalization of the “garden” as a symbol of a permanent relationship with nature, requires recognition of the Persian Garden’s geometry. The people who have previously experienced the garden with its main function, have drawn pictures of the garden, and the investigation of their works can give us a complete perception of the garden’s geometry.
Purpose of the study: The current study aimed at explain the geometry of the “Dargazine gardens” in Matrakî’s miniature. Obviously, the provision of this geometry does not necessarily mean the use of the same geometry in the present setting in the same form, and it is only the indication of a part of the human-nature relationship’s history. Hopefully, this path would continue with the aid of the past people’s efforts and experiences.
Research Methodology: The present study employed the historical interpretation method with exploratory approach. This study seeks to answer this question “what are the features of the garden’s geometry in the time and place in which the miniature has been drawn?”.
Conclusion: The information of the miniature was retrieved in two levels. The cultivation system, the irrigation and fair division of land, architectural components of buildings, and the geographical orientation and slope can be perceived by the first glance. However, the measures adopted for the welfare, comfort, and security can be obtained through further analysis of the placement of the neighborhoods, the entrance gates gates, planning of different trees, and the water passage and supply forms.
