hossein khodadad`s house

(30 رای)



Tucked away on a shady lane in the Zafaranieh district of North Tehran stands a wedding cake of a mansion, painted blue with intricate white trim. Once the home of Hossein Khodadad, a wealthy merchant who made a fortune in shipping and textiles, the estate is now a museum dedicated to that most elusive of subjects: time.

Through the ages, people have devised ingenious ways to measure and keep track of time, from sundials to electronic clocks. The museum`s designers must have been thinking along the same lines, since they filled Mr. Khodadad`s mansion with mechanical timepieces of all types

  • Background information

    The building is only 80 years old, but its architecture mimics the style of a 15th century Safavid mansion. It even contains a room that replicates the interior of Shah Abbas`s Ali Qapu Palace in Isfahan
  • Specific information

    This rather crude clepsydra, or water clock, is a timepiece that measures time by the regulated flow of water into and out of a vessel, where the amount of liquid is then measured
    A candle clock has hour markings set into the wax that show the passage of time as the candle burns down.
    Chinese fire clocks like this dragon-shaped one work by lighting a stick of incense strapped to the dragon’s back
    A most unusual piece is this sundial in the shape of a book
    Inside and out, the museum documents the march of time over the course of human history
