Hasht Behesht Palace, Esfahan

4.4
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.

  • Beautiful park right in the center of the city, we went there every morning during our stay in Esfahan as it located right behind our hotel. The Palace was closed for renovation when we were there in early March 2017 but we could walk around the Palace and enjoy its beautiful garden.
  • عمارت زیبای هشت بهشت،در مرکز باغ هشت بهشت ودر حاشیه چهارباغ عباسی(پایین) مکانی زیبا با معماری دیدنی که تناسب عجیبی با محیط پیرامون خود دارد.درحال حاضر درحال بازسازی و مرمت نیز هست
  • Palace Hasht Behesht isn't big and exciting but in my opinion garden around is worth to seeing.

Where to stay in Esfahan

Esfahan includes a smattering of accommodations that provide variety, if not depth of choice. Along the main Chahar Bagh drag and the streets that lead off it, you'll find a few fairly basic hotels, providing decent rooms in the city center, close to the main attractions and services. Hostels can be found, with dormitory rooms providing particularly good options for budget-conscious travelers who want to be right in the thick of things close to the main square and the bazaar. The most luxurious hotels in town lie further to the south, set in historic buildings overlooking the river.
