This 150-year-old building is one of the best-preserved Qajar-era houses in Yazd. The badgirs (wind catchers), traditional doors, stained-glass windows, elegant archways and alcoves distinguish it as one of the city’s grandest homes. It is worth noting the particularly delicate white-and-cream plaster work, traced with slivers of mirror that decorate the courtyard porches. The merchant family who built the mansion have long gone, and it’s now home to a set of archives.
