Dowlat Abad Garden

Dolatabad Garden in Yazd was built at the end of the Afshari period and in 1160 AH by Ali Rezaian Sabbagh known as (the great khan) who was the head of the Khan family of Yazd. Ali first built a 65-kilometer-long aqueduct and delivered water from Mehriz to Yazd and the current location of the Dolatabad Garden, and then built his own government complex (Dar al-Hukuma). This garden with an area of ​​about 70,000 square meters includes many buildings, ponds and fountains, in the space between which gardens with pomegranate and grape trees and many bagels have decorated the environment.

The huge historical aqueduct of Dolatabad, which is more than 200 years old, consists of the construction of five aqueducts and originated from the heights of Mehriz. The government was irrigating Abad. But the garden is currently being irrigated by a nearby semi-deep well.

Taghi Khan Bafghi is the father of Abdul Reza Khan Yazdi and the grandfather of Sultan Ali Khan Wazir Afkham and the Afkham Ebrahimi and Afkhami families. Documents related to this issue have been preserved among the personal documents of Afkham Ebrahimi family.
