Sheykh ol-Eslam’s House – Isfahan

Sheykh ol-Eslam’s House is a memorandum from Safavi and Qajar eras and has become one of the most elegant historical monuments in Isfahan. Primary construction of the building was done in Safavid era and it was a gift by Shah Abbas to his daughter, “Sarv Ghad Khanoum” and his son-in-law, “Mohaghegh Sabzevari”, one of the great scholars of Safavid era.

There used to be religious ceremonies such as mourning for Imam Hossein’s martyrdom in the mosque owned by Sheykh ol-Eslam Isfahan. This house is now under repair by Cultural Heritage, Handcrafts and Tourism Organization of Isfahan and is dedicated to traditional art workshops such as pottery, gold weaving and Chinese knot.
