Borujerdi House of Kashan E-Ticket

Overview

The Borujerdi House is a historic house museum in Kashan, Iran. It was built in 1857 by architect Ustad Ali Maryam for the bride of Borujerdi, a wealthy merchant. The bride came from the affluent Tabātabāei family, for whom the architect had built the nearby Tabātabāei House several years earlier.

It consists of a rectangular beautiful courtyard, delightful wall paintings by the royal painter Kamal-ol-molk, and three 40 meter tall wind towers which help cool the house to unusually cool temperatures. It has 3 entrances, and all the classic signatures of traditional Persian residential architecture, such as biruni and daruni (andarun). The house took eighteen years to build using 150 craftsmen.

The house has all the typical features of traditional Persian houses. It is separated into two parts: entrance, or exterior part and living, or interior part. They are separated with a rectangular courtyard, decorated with a garden and water pool. The house also has a 40-meter-tall wind tower, or “badgir”. Thanks to this engineering decision the air inside the house stays cool even during the hottest summer days.

The main hall of Borujerdi House is topped with a domed ceiling, decorated with outstanding ornaments. From 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 interior of the house is decorated with Sani Ol Molk paintings and sophisticated carvings of multiple plots.
