Teymouri Mansion

"Teymouri Mansion" is one of the historical buildings that dates back to the Gurkani Period which is also Known as the "Chahar Houz" hall. After the massacre of Isfahan citizens, the mansion was built in 805 AH by the order of Timur Gurkani, near Naghsh-e Jahan Garden.

Iran (IMNA) - This building that has lost its original shape and usage over the years, still called “Teymouri Hall”.

Most scholars and researchers consider this building as one of the Timurid monuments. They believe that due to the pleasant weather of the city, Timur and his descendants built mansions and palaces during their residence.

The truth of the matter is that throughout and even following the Safavid ruling dynasty, the building underwent some changes; so, some parts added to the mansion and others were removed.

The author of the “National Monuments of Isfahan” book considered this building as one of the Timurid monuments, that Timur ordered the construction of it near Naghsh Jahan Garden after the siege of Isfahan and the massacre of the citizens.

Since then, some Safavid historians have named the building as Chahar Houz which literary means four pools, because there was a pool in front of the hall known as Chahar Houz.

Currently, this mansion has a large hall, in front of which there is a high porch and several rooms with spectacular decorations that are interconnected.

At present, Teymouri Hall, which displays several periods of Islamic architecture, is in the possession of Natural History Museum of Isfahan.
