The Aali Qapoo Palace is located on the west of Naqshe Jahan Square. the name means The High Gate. It was used for the reception of the ambassadors and envoys from other countries. The six story building has numerous rooms. the famous Musicians Room contains elaborate cut-out plaster work depicting all manner and shapes of vases, although it is doubtful whether any could ever actually have been stored there.
The open balcony commands an excellent view of the square below and was an ideal spot for the royalty to watch polo, parades and fire work displays.
