Javaheri Historical House

Nestled in the neighbourhoods behind Masjed-e Jāmé sits an Iranian house turned into an artisan handicraft workshop.

Take a five minute walk away from Masjed-e Jāmé into the sprawling neighbourhoods of Jaharian Street, one of the oldest streets in Isfahan. Here, you will be welcomed by an old wooden door that will transport you back to the Qatar period.

The Javaheri Historical House surrounds a square courtyard, which in turn surrounds an old blue pool. The stained glass is a glorious sight and catches the light in a captivating way. From the second floor you can catch a glimpse of the towering minarets of the neighbouring Dardasht minarets.

Registered by the Cultural Heritage Office in 2005, the historic house became an art and handicraft workshop in 2007. In the process, it was transformed into an inspiration for some of the city's most talented artists.

Make your way into the active rooms and meet one of the local artists. Talents include woodworking, glass blowing, enamelling, and metalworking, to name a few. If you are lucky, you will be given a chance to try your hand at one of the many artforms.

The elegance of the Javaheri Historical House is enriched by the charm of the hardworking artists. It is particularly worth a visit to see the hard work poured into the handicrafts that you will find around the city.
