Hasht-Behesht Palace

Constructed in 1660 AD by the decree of Shah Soleiman this is the palace where the last kings of the Safavids period were living. It is a two-floored palace with eight separate units. What makes this palace beautiful and interesting are the tile workings indicating birds and wild animals decorating the exterior view of this palace. In the middle of the palace, an octahedral basin which would be filled through the fountains made in its bottom absorbs our attention. By having an exact look in and around the palace we can see this palace is mostly considered for springs and summers, for it is mostly an open construction with four porches on four sides. Entering its different rooms we can see beautiful paintings quite different from each other being Indicative of the genius of the architect.
