The Grape Garden of Malek Al-Tojjar is one of the most beautiful historical monuments of Isfahan. The Grape Garden is a large garden and it is located in the middle of Isfahan city, where at the time of Nader Shah Afshar, People were paying taxes there. Haj Mohammad Ibrahim Khan, known as Malek Al-Tojjar, the son of the finance manager of Isfahan, ordered the construction of this garden, in addition to living, to be held for religious ceremonies and ta’zieh, as well as for the marriage ceremony of low-income families.

The Architect

In the past, architects did not mention their names because of humility. But it is said: the architect of this building is Professor Hossein Chi.

This yard has several parts:

The Inner Courtyard (Andarooni)

There was a courtyard in the middle of the yard, which there was a beautiful pond and a garden that helped air conditioning the house. Later, the courtyard was covered and the pond and garden were removed to make the ceremonies more comfortable. The ladies sat upstairs and the gentlemen sat downstairs.

Winter Alcove (Shah-Neshin Zemestaneh)

This room was used in winter because of its sun lighting. The decoration of the room reflects that the room was also used for guests. Currently, the tomb of Malek Al-Tojjar and his wife are in this room.

Summer Alcove (Shah-Neshin Tabestaneh)

A very nice mansion in the middle of the garden. The hall has become more attractive with colored glasses. The presence of these colored glasses has many reasons: each color is a symbol of the season, the effect of color psychology, the effect of modifying the light, covering the interior, and preventing the entry of insects. The four rooms are made up above, which are called the room of the earrings and the bride and groom’s room.

The table and chairs of the hall have been ordered by Malek Al-Tojjar from France and chandeliers from Italy.

Zahra Khanum’s room

The room is for the daughter of Malek Al-Tojjar, who marries with her cousin. Her husband scams Zahra Ms. and takes his second wife. She divorces and stays in that room for many years.

The Monitoring Room

A room with four doors, each of which has a path to another room and has a view.

Back Front Inner Room (Spring House)

There is a room in the corner of the house where there is a beautiful pond. Since the essence of home and family were important at that time, the landlord did not bring the stranger to the house, but they would come to the room from the outside courtyard.

I think losing your travel documents, money, and your phone in a foreign country is on the top place in the list of top things you must be scared of when you go abroad. You can google the list of the cities famous for their pickpockets and purse-snatchers. Now, if you’re coming to Iran, hearing the financial news in Iran might worry you a little; and in fact, the tourist centres and crowded areas are no exception in this case. But statistics show that Iran is almost a lot better and safer than other countries in this case. But, only in case you want to travel with peace of mind, keep these points in mind: • You don’t have carry your passport with you to everywhere you go; only a copy of that would suffice. No one usually asks for it. • You will need cash, but you shouldn’t carry all the cash you have with you. • I suggest you to put your eggs in different baskets, I mean split your money and put it in different places so in case you get robbed, you will have some money left. • It’t better to use bags and handbags instead of backpack in crowded places like bazaars; so you can always watch the zippers. • And always keep an eye on your phone!
