Manteghinejad House is one of the Qajar buildings that has changed its functon today with restoration. At first, the house was converted into an archive of sounds and melodies, and after a while, it continued to function as the Museum of Islamic Arts.

The main hall of this house has one of the most beautiful mirror works in Iran, which attracts many tourists. On the south side of the house, there is a royal residence with decorations such as paintings on the body and ceiling, as well as magnificent mirrors. There are two rooms on either side of the royal residence, one with a painted roof and windbreak, and the other with painted beams. In these paintings, flower and plant designs are seen along with images of women and European-style palaces. The house has a small but clean courtyard in which, like all traditional Iranian houses, a pool is located. The geranium flowers have multiplied the purity and intimacy of the house.
