Very nice building

The most beautiful building in Tabriz. It houses a museum inside, but it´s well worth to go there and visit it outside.

Lovers of Persian carpets should not miss the main hall. You will find the most finely knotted large carpets of Tabriz design. I recommend Ali as a most knowlegable and passionate tour... More

Worth a quick look, this building is a bit out of place in Tabriz. The architecture is European which provides a nice contrast to everything else in Tabriz.
