It is actually divided into big and small squares, Char-Su, Gharakel, Hakoopjan, Sang Tarashha, Tabrizis, and Iravanis, that now only Tabrizis and Iravanis neighborhoods have Armenian inhabitants," Shokooh Sadat Arabi Hashemi, the author of the book "Armenians of New Jolfa in the Safavid era" said.

Pointing to David House in Jolfa, she continued, "This house is one of the monuments remained from the Safavid era that some changes have been done in the southern part of this house during the Qajar dynasty; two rooms and one covered iwan have been added."

Referring to Sukias House as one of the famous houses in this district, which is located in Tabrizis neighborhood, she added, "A two-story hall was built in the middle of the main building. There is a small octagonal stone pool in the middle of this hall that porches in two-stories have been constructed around it. Miniature paintings can be seen inside the niches and porches from the Safavid era; these paintings are made artistically with the style of Reza Abbasi."
