The term “Besh Qardash” means “Five Brothers” in the Khorasani Turkic language which is a local language in the region. It refers to the mythic history of the place. According to the myth, there had been five brothers fighting against the then-brutal government and when they harbored to a hillside, they disappeared and five water springs trilled.
In the Qajar era, Naser al-Din Shah passed the place in his state visit and ordered Yar Mohammad Khan Shadlou to construct a monument right next to the springs. Also a crown shaped swimming pool was built after some time.
