The following document is directly copied from Wikipedia:

Shah-goli

(Azerbaijani and Persian:شاه‌گلی) is the name of a large park in [Tabriz] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabriz), Iran. Early history of the Shah-goli is not clear. However, it seems that it was used as a water resource for agricultural purposes. It was used as a summer palace during the Qadjar dynasty (when Tabriz was the official residence of Prince of Iran). It contains a palace that is surrounded by a great square water pool almost 12 meters deep. During 2nd Pahlavi's it was reconstructed. After the Iranian Revolution of 1979 as normal process for that period for removing Shah name from everywhere the name of Shah-goli was changed to El-goli (Persian and Azerbaijani:ائل‌گلی) in official documents in but the name in common use continues to be Shah-goli.
