  • Lovely tile work and mirrors. The gardens would be nice in the spring or early fall. There is a nice student run gift shop in the basement that sells miniature paintings and bone boxes at fair prices. 
  • Traditional bourgeois House of the XIX century. A veranda all extraordinary in mirrors. Very nice garden in the Persian tradition.

  • East meets west rich man house. Visit if you have spare time and love painting (on the ceiling). Lovely souvenir shop underground.

  • 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
