History of the Saraye Ameriha Boutique Hotel
The house of Ameriha was erected during the rule of Karim Khan Zand. This house was built prior to the 1192 (Lunar) earthquake and was repaired during the Qajar dynasty after partial destruction and some parts were added to it. The original owner of the house of Ameriha was Ibrahim Khan Kalanter. Later on during the Qajar dynasty when Kashan was surrounded by Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar, Saham Al-altaneh who was a man of Arab origins came to help Kashan’s governor and saved Kashan from the peril. The governor of Kashan, as a sign of gratitude, gave him this house! After him, the yards and courtyards of this house were inherited to his eldest son, Ibrahim Khalil Khan Ameri, and the rest of the building were given to other members of the family. And from then on the name of house was House of Ameriha.
The architecture of the Saraye Ameriha Boutique Hotel
The first thing you need to see in order to understand this complex better is its plan. Historical houses and most of the houses in Kashan have so many yards and are so intricate that one would get lost without a comprehensive map and would not enjoy the time spent there as much as he or she would have if they had a map. The historical complex of the house of Ameriha is comprised of a number of distinct and connected houses. Its total are is between 7000 and 9000 square meters.
The architecture of this structure of based on flowerbed pit and central yard and in all the yards there is a dock and the circulation of the water flow has been taken into account so that the hot summers of the desert wouldn’t be so irritating. The architecture of this house due to the existence of underground paths is unique on its own right. This path is in the form of a underpass corridor and is located in the eastern front of the alcove yard which is the only way connecting the two yards of the house.
The house of Ameriha has the highest vent among all the houses of Kashan.
Other than its massive area, the house of Ameriha is also distinct form other houses in Kashan in that it has separate and exclusive baths for men and women. These baths which are considered to be a simpler form of the public baths in Kashan, are exclusively for the people who resided within the house of Ameriha, because the house is only one hundred meters away from the historical bath of Soltan Amir Ahmed.
