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.
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.
