Isfahan has long been home to prominent figures, gifted artisans, and wealthy merchants, whose footprints may be traced in superb houses left behind the ancient city walls.

Iran (IMNA) - Khan-e Eje-i is one of those centuries-old mansions renowned for its rich ornamentation, including intricate tile work, calligraphy, murals, fine stucco, and impressive mirror and glass work.

The high porticos embellished with detailed stained-glass windows, plaster reliefs, and fine mirror work are a particular wonder, designed to show off the high social status of the original owner.

The house in its current state covers 530 square meters in area, but in the past, it was over 2000 square meters. It is arranged around two interlinked courtyards, each with a distinct function: the Andaruni served as an internal space where family members lived; the Biruni served as an outdoor space used for receiving and lodging guests or conducting business.

The main courtyard features tiny manicured flower beds, warm south-facing seating areas that catch the winter sun, and a fish pond with fountains, helping to keep the courtyard cool.

Khan-e Eje-i has been painstakingly restored and is open to the public as a reminiscent of genuine Persian architecture.
