Geographic location, climate, historicity, integration of natural and artificial environments has been led to mystical and cosmological order in develop of Persian Garden. Therefore, the study of different insights and viewpoints is necessary in investigation of Persian Gardens. Hence, some particular approaches are open to interpretation of Persian Garden. The goals of this study are: First, identifying the mentioned approaches and their charecteristics; second, hypothesize a comprehensive model based on existing approaches and third, applying the constructed this model in this case study. In First step, the related literature review has been done in order to recognition the mentioned approaches and their characteristics. The results led to identify three main approaches through the literature review, includes: 1-The philosophical approach; 2-Historical approach and 3-Physio-natural Approach.

Historical approach is expressions the garden as an objective phenomenon and rely on historical documents. The focal point of historical approach is concentrating on historical features in the gardens. Therefore, the reliable historical evidence and documents are the major source of knowledge to identify and explore the past of the garden. The Physio-natural Approach emphasizes on garden establishment pattern in the context, physical order, configuration of plants, water and architecture and its connection with environmental factors in the context. Also, the climate conditions are considered as one of the serious factor. In the second step, the comprehensive model was configurated based on combination of identified approaches. Normally, scholars have conducted the researches on Persian Garden based on different approaches which embraces its own methodology.
