Tabatabaei House is a historical house built in the 1880s and was owned by a rich man in that region. The house features typical classical Persian design and architecture of stained glass windows and a courtyard of gardens and a pool. The Tabatabaei House was designed by Ustad Ali Maryam who also helped to build the Boroujerdi-ha House - another historical house - that was for the rich man’s newly married daughter.

In the words of a former UNESCO chairman during his visit to the 7,000-year-old city in 1993, "Kashani architects were the greatest alchemists of history. They could make gold out of dust". Little wonder then that several Safavi monarchs spent leisure time here. Theory has it that the Bible’s three wise men commenced their journey to Bethlehem from here. The old quarter is famous for it’s spectacularly designed heritage houses, the most-cherished being the Tabatabaee House, built by a wealthy merchant for his daughter-in-law. Wander the corridors and courtyard to exquisite marble, mirrorwork and stucco adornments.

Pleasant traditional house with nice courtyard. Larger and less garish than Boroujerdi House.
