4.4
#5 of 10 in Historic Sites in Shiraz
The lion and sun on the royal emblem greet visitors to Qavam House, where you get a sense of the powerful elegance of the Qavam family. The traditional house received its finishing touches in 1886 by designer Mirza Ibrahim Han who was inspired by the Victorian era. Admire the lush paintings on the low ceilings and get a peek at 19th century aristocratic life. You can escape the heat of the sun in the lush gardens in the courtyard and walk among the palms and flowers.

    Beautiful place, great views, you can even dress up as a traditional persian princess and get printed photos. I highly recommend a visit here if you are in Shiraz.

    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.

Where to stay in Shiraz

To the north of this central district, you'll find the most opulent options in town, with luxury hotels offering commanding views of traditional Persian gardens, swimming pools, and onsite fine-dining restaurants.
