    Hezar-Jarib, Isfahan: A late-seventeenth-century engraving ... showing a view of the garden seen by Chardin. Created by Shah Abbas, the Hezar-Jarib was located at the end of the Chahar-Bagh-e Bala, and its central walkway was a continuation of the latter... It was located on a natural slope, and according to Chardin and several other travelers of the time, it was composed of twelve terraces that followed the slope of the terrain. The spot had a splendid view of the city and the river along the central walkway; at the very top stood the palace of Jahan-Nama (Garden that Displays the World). (p. 103)
