Until now, 22 Iranian sites have been inscribed on UNESCOs World Heritage List. Irans Persian Garden is one of the sites inscribed on UNESCOs List in 2011. The property includes nine gardens in as many provinces. They exemplify the diversity of Persian garden designs that evolved and adapted to different climate conditions while retaining principles that have their roots in the times of Cyrus the Great, 6th century BC. Always divided into four sectors, with water playing an important role for both irrigation and ornamentation, the Persian garden was conceived to symbolize Eden and the four Zoroastrian elements of sky, earth, water and plants. These gardens, dating back to different periods since the 6th century BC, also feature buildings, pavilions and walls, as well as sophisticated irrigation systems. They have influenced the art of garden design as far as India and Spain. Persian Garden is a well-known garden style in the world. Besides overcoming the environmental restraints, creators of Persian Gardens have also manifested cultures and beliefs of people living in this land in their work; and thats the reason orientalists have known Persian Garden a symbol of Promised Paradise. Persian Garden is in a great harmony with its natural and cultural surroundings and cannot be identified segregated from Irans characteristics and peoples culture and belief.

Cultural Landscape Association (CLA) is planning to organize a specialized tour and workshop called Taste Paradise in an international level for the experts, in order to get a better global recognition for Persian Garden and the elite to know it further. This is a unique opportunity for experts such as landscape professionals, architects, botanists, landscape historians, conservationists to exchange information with Iranian specialist experts while visiting Persian Gardens. After our very successful international tours and on-site workshops Taste Paradise in May 2013, Landscape Transformation in May 2015, and Taste Persian Cultural Landscape & Architecture in November 2018, The Cultural Landscape Association (CLA) is planning to orchestrate another journey (Taste Paradise II) for experts and professionals all around the globe, to visit and enjoy the cultural beauty of Persian Gardens. In order to raise its quality, these workshops are only available to a limited number of people (20 participants for each tour) at the time, so it would be better if applicants register earlier not to lose chance.
