About Razaqian House of Taft

Razaqian House of Taft is one of the typical examples of traditional houses of Pahlavi era in Yazd. In addition to the central courtyard, summer and winter rooms, hall and basement, there are elements such as badgir, vestibule, pavilion, cob mortar, and delicate plaster work.
The presence of certain elements such as two short four-sided badgirs, and an iwan and an arcade on the eastern side of the building, have made Razaqian House of Taft a special monument in Taft.
The approximate area of the field of the house is 750 square meters and its building area is 550 square meters. In recent years, renovations have been carried out and currently Taft Cultural Heritage Office is placed here.
