From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Bāgh (Persian: باغ‎) usually translated as garden, refers to an enclosed area with permanent cultures (many types of trees and shrubs) as well as flowers. Also known as Bageecha or Bagicha.

Bāgh is a word common to the languages Persian,[1] Pashto, Kurdish, Lurish, and means garden and orchard, specifically one containing fruit- and flower-bearing trees.[2] In Persian, the plural of bāgh is bāgh-hā (باغ‌ها or باغها) and in Kurdish, baxan (بيغان).

The word bāgh is encountered in both Middle Persian (Pahlavi) and Sogdian.[2] In Farizandi, Gilaki, Shahmirzadi and Sorkhei bāk, and in Natanzi bāg stand for bāgh[2] (see Dialects of Central Iran).

Use in place names

The word bāgh is often met in place-names in conjunction with a word in which the notion of garden is already implicit, such as Bāgh-e Ferdows, Bāgh-e Jannat and Bāgh-e Rezvān.[3]

Bāgh is also a constituent part of the place-name Karabagh, which is often said to mean 'black garden' but probably means 'many gardens.'[4]


The word has is found in Urdu as well as other Indian languages, Turkish (Baug), Azerbaijani, Georgian language (ბაღი), and Armenian. The Russian language utilizes the words bakhcha (бахча), from the Persian word bāghche (Persian: باغچه‎ meaning small garden) to designate melons and gourds.
