Hasht Behesht Palace, Esfahan
(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Part of the national heritage, Hasht Behesht Palace represents the city's only surviving palace from the Safavid era. Surrounded by a lush flower garden--which doubles as a public park--the octagonal mansion dates from around 1080 and served as a residence of one of the last Safavid princesses. Enter to see the interior: though in dire condition, it still features elaborate stucco work, as well as ceiling and wall paintings. Notice the marble pool, called the "pearl pond," under the central dome, which retains fragments of its original mosaic.

  • For the Palace in the gardens had become oasis for many citizens. Individual palaces were rare in Islamic creature designs.

  • It is a beautiful Palace that deserves more attention from the authorities for maintenance seen is scarce and making that the monument would deteriorate. Also the gardens that surround it are worth.

  • Great Palace with its garden and its pond. The décor inside is elegant and noble materials. Each element of the decoration tells a story. Take an audio guide.
