In this beautiful house, you can see paintings with different themes of birds, flowers and animals on its walls. This historic house was nationally registered in 1975.

There is an interesting story about the name of this building. Ghavam-ol-Molk IV's daughter, Zinat-ol-Molk Ghavami, lived in this house, which is only one alley away from her father's house, Ghavam's mansion.
