The Holy Quran, as the guiding book of mankind, contains a collection of divine verses in which there are innumerable truths and mysteries, and is the greatest manifestation of the emergence of a truth in the material body. So that the truth of heaven appears in the material form and the architecture of the garden. Contrary to the simple appearance of Persian garden, the structural and semantic complexities resulted from the combination of four elements in the Persian garden are in accordance with the Paradise; in fact, the influence of water element as the main existential factor in the pattern of Persian garden and its sanctity in Iranian thoughts are evident and more important. So that water is a vital element in preserving the dignity of heaven in the manifestation and appearance of it in the Persian garden. An interpretative research methodology is adopted in this study, which is based on the analysis of contents of Quran verses. This study seeks to find out the manifestation of the water elemente in the physical and functional system of the Persian garden with its image in the Paradise. A comparison of Persian garden and the Paradise from the perspective of Holy Quran and the interpretations of Al-Imran Surah show that the functional system of Persian garden corresponds with the names of the Paradise, which are proportional to its rank and place, and the element of water in the physical system of Persian garden corresponds to different faces of water in the functions of the Paradise.
