The palace of Hasht Behesht was completed in 1669 in Isfahan or Esfahan. It has fine murals and spectacular roofs while retaining a domestic simplicity. It's name and style of construction probably derive from a much older palace built in Tabriz by Ouzun Hassan. It consists of an almost octagonal base on which four eivans are raised and four smaller sets of chambers, while the centre is surmounted by a spectacular ceiling.
The exterior tilework is notable for its naturalistic style, depicting peacocks and angels alongside trees in a less stylised way than previous buildings, while inside there are charming murals on the walls and a further variety of spectacular ceilings.

Address: Ostandari St. No.8
