This weird building that had been as the resort of Safavid Kings has had an interesting application in maintaining and activating the pool set, a logical application with precision and calculative engineering. Form and function beauty with stunning geometry in the middle of the pool, is associate with engineering application in the field of dam and its protection, and accurate calculation of water motion and flow penetration. What is discussed in this paper with descriptive and analytical method based on field data according to archaeological excavation and library is coordination and cooperation of form with function and dam engineering operations and water circulation system in this garden.
