Architecture of Mirror and Lighting Museum

Mirror & Lighting Meseum Complex which is also known as Mirror Palace is located in a large garden with the area of 8174 m2
Let's enter the garden heading to the building. We will appreciate its traditional Persian and European architectural style. Passing through the maze of corridors, we get into a room which is decorated with gorgeous moldings, drawings and mirrors. We will be attracted to the building not only because of its art and architecture but also because of the fabulous things we are going to see.

Mirror & Lighting Museum
The building was decorated by Iranian artists. Do not miss visiting the springhouse which is the most decorated part.
In 1320 SH, Mr Sarafzadeh ordered to build a mansion with the area of 837 m2 in the garden which could receive his guests. After Iran revolution in 1979, the garden was transferred to Mostazafan Foundation and has been used as a museum since 1377 SH (1998 AD). Its springhouse is used as a photography, drawing and painting, and calligraphy gallery.
