Sirjan is a small capital city of Sirjan County, Kerman Province, Iran. It is famous for growing great amount of pistachio as there are farms all around this region. Iran pistachio growth capacity is only rivaled by United States, however, the quality here is superior. Most of fresh pistachio are sold and consumed inside the country while most of dried pistachio is sold abroad.
Around 46 km east from the city there is Garden of Stones, also called Bagh-e Sangi. If you are heading toward the deserts of Kerman, we suggest taking this detour to see this remarkable place that is for people who search for something different and maybe even weird. In the middle of nowhere, surrounded by only a few sheep, a new playground, toilet, and sand, actually lots of sand, lies this garden of stone trees. Hundreds of tall dry trees stretch across the sand, each with stones small and large, some weighing up to 10 kg hanging from the branches.
