The advent of Islam in Iran and other parts of the world was advocated by notions such as human equality, freedom of opinion, etc., which was highly accepted and welcomed by different suppressed classes of society in that era. Through the practice of Islamic ideology, Muslim artists transformed the art and architecture tremendously, mostly in the fields of language, expression, principles, attributes, and association of these concepts to Quran, the principles of Islam and the traditions of the Prophet. The most significant concept that was introduced after the advent of Islam was the concept of paradise which led to an evolutional transformation in gardening.
According to Islamic trainings, the plants are highly valued. Paradise in Quran is described as a garden covered with dense vegetation promised to the righteous people. This concept (paradise) led to a considerable transformation in Persian gardening after Islam. This paper aims at visualizing paradise in Persian garden and using symbols and signs to intensify the sense of place in the garden as replica of heavenly paradise. It is a descriptive-analytical research in which the information and data were collected using library resources.
