Upon entering this historic house of Iran and walking around the corner, we will realize the beauty and antiquity of this building. Upon entering this magnificent house, a large rectangular pond in the middle of the courtyard, which gives this house a double beauty, catches the eyes of every viewer. A basin that supplied its water through aqueducts that had previously been flooded.

Haj Agha Ali's house, formerly known as the Vaqfi House, is made up of many collections. The presence of about 90 rooms around this complex shows the size and scope of this house.

The courtyards and corridors that connect the different parts of the house, along with the porches and other places that were included in its time and in the architecture of Qajar era, have left an unparalleled collection.

In traditional and Qajar architecture in past times, it was customary to build different parts of residential buildings, each of which has a separate application. Parts such as the interior, the royal residence, the privacy of the house and other different parts. In this unique mansion in Iran, beautiful parts have been gathered around each other. Another of these sections was the royal residence of this complex, which was one of the most important parts of residential buildings during the Qajar era.
