  • This house is full of wonderful mirror arts and paintings. It takes about 3-4 hours to go through it. So much attention to details is unbelievable. It has a wonderful architecture and so well built. 
  • Two storey house with a mix of traditional and european style- nice mirror room and garden. Preserved quite well and popular with both local and foreigners 
  • The Qavam House preserves the elegance and refinement enjoyed by the upper-class families during the 19th century. The paintings on the low ceilings of the house are inspired by Victorian era Europe. ...  more »

  • Imo simply the most beautiful garden in Shiraz. Not only the garden is full of flowers with a nice smell but the house is full of decorations and paintings. Even the souvenir shops are well furnished. You can spend hours chilling around here. A must visit place in Shiraz.
  • Perfect view, There's many mirror and Beaty tree 🎄
  • Spring is coming, flowers are blooming, and this beautiful little flower garden is alive! The mansion, though not too big, but clearly shows the opulent way of living with painted ceilings and room with mirrors adorning the ceilings, like a disco from a goneby era.
  • One of the many gardens in Shiraz and very beautiful...just like the others
  • on of the best attraction in the ordibehesht
