  • Price : Free
  • Address : Valiasr Street, Tehran, Iran

While the house was registered as a national landmark in 2002, it still operates as the headquarters of the sheep butchers union, and this is not necessarily a bad thing. At least it has guaranteed the house a life.

  • Background information

    Anis al-Dawla , the highest ranking and most influential of nasir al-dawla was born in the village of amama in the lavasan district, north of Tehran, to peasant parents. An oil painting of amama by he prominent Qajar painter kamal-al-Mulk Ghafari is in the Gulistan Palace in Tehran. Anis al-Dawla moved to the village of Dulab outside Tehran with her paternal aunt and uncle after her father`s death.
    Her story is a real-life rags to riches tale: the orphaned daughter of shepherds, the shah met her on a hunting trip and brought her to Tehran. She gradually rose to become the most prominent wife and raees-e andarooni, executive chief of the harem.
  • Specific information

    The first floor is sealed off as storage space. The second (and main) floor houses the offices of the union. Delicate carvings of flowers and birds in pastel colours fill every room.
  • Outlook

    The home is not large, but rosy and welcoming. A round blue pool dominates the garden, reflecting the trees and wall carvings – as well as the hideous three-storey building next door.
    A high aluminium pyramid roof indicates that once not long ago it snowed heavily in this area. These days one forgets the snow that covered the entire city throughout winter, even a decade ago.
