Abstract: 
Historical gardens, as a national heritage and the worthy statement of historic and cultural identity, clearly illustrate the entire relations among civilization and nature. The art of garden designing in Persia has been mostly reflected on the subtle articulation of plant, water, architecture and the way in which they are interrelated. Thus in attitude towards the historical gardens as a trace of the past in the city, it seems vital to reconsider the garden constantly, due to environmental, aesthetic and cultural values.
In this article; the Tehran's gardens during Qajar period, which are about 80 to 200 years old, are investigated. Based on the present research, the gardens of this era are disappearing and just a few is remained. If such established procedure is prolonged for city development it will consequently lead to complete destruction of these gardens.
Identification of the gardens of this era throughout the city, and recognition of their structural elements and criteria and the cause for their development in Elborz Mountain foothills were the main aims of this research.
Furthemore, this investigation has been possible through detailed inspection of documents, including historical texts, intineraries, political personalities, reminiscences, graphics, drawings, photographs and paintings collected in archives and authentics museums. The results of this investigation have been utilized by analytical methods in order to measure the dominant structure in the garden: water, plant and architecture.
The findings of this research whitin a historical document of scarce Tehran gardens would be available for improvement and renovation of valuable Qajar period's gardens.
