The Garden of Paradise design is symbolic of heaven in Persian tradition. The term Garden of Paradise refers to an elaborately fertile garden, filled with exotic and varied plants and animals, enclosed by a wall, symbolic of the separation between heaven and earth. Wealthy Persians often built Gardens of Paradise on their palatial compounds, as places of worship and as symbols of their status. Traditional Persian Gardens of Paradise were rectangular, with a river or body of water running North to South, and East to West, forming a cross and dividing the garden into four sections. These gardens also often included covered pavilions or structures, and raised walkways for the purpose of viewing the garden from above. Fountains and waterfalls symbolizing eternal life were also common.
