  • With outward appearance of strength, this mid-18TH-century architectural complex is located in the heart of the city is of brick and plant square with a cylindrical tower at each corner. It is very photogenic and it is a pleasant walk going around the monument. Inside, restored, is open to visitors. The entrance is worth 150,000 rials. You can visit the various rooms of the residence of Karim Khan, distributed around a large courtyard with pond. Various stays, aside from some decorated stuccos, are not of great interest, pero noteworthy architecture and decoration of a hammam. It is not something outside the series, but as I see, it's worth the visit inside.
