Spread over 23,000 square meters, Fin Garden is in some ways similar to Shazdeh Garden in Kerman. The garden features a central yard, fortification wall and cylindrical towers. Tall walls separate the garden from its surroundings. There are also cedar trees with an age of up to 500 years around the garden.

The nearby Soleimanieh Spring supplies water to the garden. Being a Persian Garden, the chahar bagh (meaning four gardens) layout is evident in Fin. It is quadrilateral in shape and divided into four parts by waterways. The waterways are supplied with water from a source in the middle of the garden.

Fin Garden has two bathhouses. Both of the bathhouses are located in the southern part of the garden. The bathhouses in Fin Garden attract the largest number of visitors mainly due to the assassination of Amir Kabir in one of the bathhouses. So if you plan to visit Kashan during your tour of Iran, then Fin Garden is a must-see.
