Hasht Behesht Palace, Esfahan
(4.5/5 based on 130+ 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. Plan your visit to Hasht Behesht Palace and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Esfahan travel itinerary maker.

  • I've been here with my husband in our late honeymoon, it was unforgettable memories, the palace and the garden make us wander how glorious time these days. Its very beautiful, highly recommend 
  • Palace within a park that served and serves to give refreshment in summer. The Park is public and free, a visit to the apartment you pay. It is 3 floors, but can only be visited on ground floor. The frescoes are very deteriorated and there are very few bits. Will not recommend
