‘Abd al-‘Ali Khan Sufi Siyavush's house

‘Abd al-‘Ali Khan Sufi Siyavush's house

Mirza Yahya Khan was the son of Ma‘sumah Khanum (known as Khanum Buzurg) and Aqa Mirza Nasr Allah. Mirza Nasr Allah built this house for his son’s wedding. Shukuh Sadat Muqimi, wife of ‘Abd al-‘Ali Khan Sufi Siyavush currently lives in this house. Only the second floor of this house has been photographed. This floor has more or less retained the old interior design. It includes a living room, a dining room, and a guest room. Since the structure of the first floor changed after renovations, it was not photographed. It originally had a large veranda and three large rooms in the back.
