Bagh-e Sangi (stony garden) is a mysterious garden that is not similar to any other one. There are unfruitful trunks, dry, long and short trees with a regular distance from each other and no roots in the soil of the garden.

Large and small stones irregularly have been hung from the branches of trees with thick wires and tall and sturdy ropes as the symbol of the dry fruits of trees built by Darvish khan instead of his lost real garden. About the creature of this garden in 1340 SH, Darvish khan Esfandiarpour, one of the farmer and landowners of this region, lost lots of his lands during the land reform, then he decorated his garden with stone as protesting against the land reform because he was deaf and speechless.

Darvish khan spent all years of his life to build this garden and used special techniques which were buried by his death. Hanging each stone and constructing every tree which lasted several years had a special meaning for Darvish khan so that he had built a new stone tree if something new happens in his life.

For example, he hanged a curved stone like a shaved head on a tree when his grandson became a soldier and he constructed another tree based on his new thought about a special day. Darvish khan life and his stony garden have been depicted two times by Paviz Kimiaei. Darvish khan body was buried in his stony garden in the age of 90th.
