Tabatabaei house, located in the old district of Kashan, is a marvelous
exhibition of Persian architecture and architectural ornaments. This historical
Persian house (it is hard to call it a house!), which was the house of Mr.
Tabatabaei a carpet businessman, is built 200 years ago and shows the original
style of Persian old houses. This big house which is about 4700 square meters,
includes 40 rooms, 4 courtyards, 4 basements, 3 wind catchers and 2 Qanats.
The same as other glorious Persian houses, Tabatabaei house includes inner
part, outer part and some rooms for the servants. The small courtyard and the
rooms in the inner part were usually used by the family members for the privacy
that is respected in Persian culture. The rooms of the outer part of the house
are ornamented with glorious stucco works and colorful glasses and the formal and
luxurious ceremonies were held in them.
The main cobblestoned courtyard has three turquoise water pools (the
inseparable element of a Persian house), surrounded by round small gardens. The
marvelous rooms of Tabatabaei house are built all around the courtyard. The
rhythmic arcs above the windows and the doors, the slim columns and the madly
beautiful stuccos done on the high walls are all done by the skillful hands of
Persian architectures and artists.
