The spectacular birds’ garden, in an area of over 55,000 square meters, was founded in 1997 by Isfahan Municipality in a thicket in Nazhovan, about 4 km west of Vahid bridge.

Unequalled in its unique design, the garden is home to almost 4,000 birds of 130 species, taken from different ecosystems, and the garden has been developed based on their natural ways of life. For instance, water birds such as ducks, geese and flamingos live in ponds, glass-made cages belong to birds like parrots, and equally rocks are partridges’ territory.

The inner garden, in an area of 17,000 square meters, bountifully supplies birds’ natural needs. The grid netting, 40,000 square meters, stands on 16 metal pillars, ranging from 25 to 32 meters in height.

The alluring garden consists of some main units:

Reproduction division:

Here some facilities are provided for birds to safely lay eggs and breed chicks that will be protected until they are mature enough to be set free in the garden.

Feeding division:

Birds of different species need different foods. Additionally, the amount of food varies as well. Some eat fruits, some seeds. Others are carnivorous and there are some who eat a variety of foods. So birds are fed depending on their needs.

Hygiene unit:

When birds are diagnosed with a disease, they are examined thoroughly and go through treatment procedures by an experienced vet. Disinfection of all corners of the garden is among the things done in this section. Also, birds are vaccinated against contagious Newcastle disease.

Quarantine unit:

In order to keep diseases under control and prevent their spread, the new birds are transferred into this unit and once their health is confirmed, they are released into the garden.

Taxidermy unit:

Taxidermy is a technique for preserving animals for purposes like research and public display. So here taxidermists remove birds’ skin and fat, fluff their feathers, make skeletons suited to their size and create lifelike copies of the birds.

This amazing tourist attraction is also a center for researchers and scientists alike, where they can take advantage of the tranquility and enchantment of nature and learn more about the birds they study.
