Abstract: 

Regarding the importance and purpose of "water" in the Iranian culture, the present paper attempts to analyze and discuss "water" with respect to its cryptic concept.
In this regard, we will first consider the fundamental issues of the creation of water followed by the discussion of the symbolic and mythical concepts of "water" in the human history as well as in the Iranian culture- where we will see such concepts appear with different names.
Then, the effect of this element on the art of architecture and miniature- as the purest and the most genuine art of the Iranian nation and land- is briefly discussed.
We hope this paper serves as a basis for more comprehensive studies in future works.
