(Persia Digest) – The Constitution House of Tabriz is a house museum in the city of Tabriz in northwestern Iran, constructed in the Qajar style of architecture in 1868. It was the personal property of Haj Mahdi Kuzekanani.
The house used to be known as the Constitution Museum and was the venue where constitutionalists held their meetings during the 11-month wars of Tabriz.
The building entrance opens onto a beautiful tree-lined courtyard with a pond. Two statues of two great men of history, Sattar Khan and Bagher Khan, stand on either side of the entrance.
Roof lights, columns, stucco capitals, Orosi sash windows, and wood carvings on doors are some the features of this architectural masterpiece.
The basement houses a library and research center.
Mirror works and stained glass adorn the interior of the building. The rooms of the upper floor overlook the courtyard and are the most exquisite part of the house with their lattice windows and stained glass.
