Islamic Arts Museum or Manteghinejad House is located in Shiraz’s Ahmadi neighborhood, which used to be one of the upper-class neighborhoods of this city.

Manteghinejad House is among the historical mansions of Shiraz. It is also known as the Islamic Arts Museum. It was built in Qajar era and was registered as a national monument of Iran on May 6, 1973.

The House of Manteghinejad is very significant in terms of its architecture. Its mirror hall is one of the most unique mirror halls built in the history of Iranian architecture. Sash windows, beautiful plastering, and impressive paintings on the walls and ceilings, are just some of the architectural features of this house, which were also present in most houses built during Qajar period, such as the house of Zinat al-Molk and Narenjestan Ghavam.

In a Nutshell

Islamic Arts Museum is one of the lesser-known attractions of Shiraz. This beautiful house has an interior and exterior building. The exterior of the mansion is decorated with marvelous mirror-work. In front of the mansion is a small courtyard with a rectangular pool that reflects the image of house on the water, giving the place an alluring look.
