  • Afif-Abad Garden (Persisn : باغ عفیف آباد - Bāq-i Afif-Ābād‎), originally the Gulshan Garden(Persian : باغ گلشن - Bāq-i Gulshan‎), is a museum complex in Shiraz , Iran . Located in the affluent Afif-Abad district of Shiraz, the complex was constructed in 1863. It contains a former royal mansion, a historical weapons museum, and a Persian garden , all open to the public . The Gulshan Garden is one of the oldest gardens in Shiraz. During the Safavid dynasty, it was used as a palace by the Safavid Kings. The current main building was constructed by Mirza Ali Mohammad Khan Qavam II in 1863. He bought a nearby qanat to water his garden. After his death, the garden was eventually inherited by his niece, Afife; thus being called "Afif-Abad". In 1962, it was restored by the army. It now functions as a weapons museum.
