Borujerdi House-Photo by Hossein Cheraghi

Borujerdi House is an example of a wealthy Kashan family residence of the 19th century. This house belonged to Borujerdi family and is an outstanding masterpiece of Persian architecture. Borujerdi House was built in 1857 by Seyyed Mehdi Borujerdi, a merchant from Kashan. Seyyed fell in love with a girl from the affluent Tabatabaei family. The merchant dedicated this house to the girl who became his wife to impress her family. The construction took 18 years and 150 craftsmen – no wonder it is one of the most impressive buildings in the city. The main hall of Borujerdi House is topped with a domed ceiling, decorated with outstanding ornaments. From the outside, the roof looks like a fairytale castle. The shape of the exterior of Borujerdi House was once compared with buildings designed by Gaudi in Barcelona. The house’s interior is decorated with Sani Ol Molk paintings and sophisticated carvings of multiple plots. (Kashan, Iran)
