Being one the most valuable historical monuments of the old city of Kashan, The Tabatabaies' House displays not only the splendor and impressiveness of its unique architecture, but also the charm of its artistic and aesthetic decorations. The house was owned by Mr. Tabatabai, a great carpet merchant who lived in the Qajar period. The construction of this impressive mansion, reportedly by master architect Ali Maryam Kashani, lasted 12 years and was finally completed in 1834. The elegant paintings in the house were all created under the supervision of the famous Iranian artist Sani-el Molk Ghaffari.
The Tabatabaies' House is replete with highly ornate decorations, luxury rooms, graceful doors and impressive columns. The throne room looks onto a long traditional Iranian pool. Plasterwork has efficiently been exploited to decorate this house.
