Soltani Historical House

The building of the old house of Soltani belongs to Soltani family, one of landlords and grandees of Qaen. This building has been built concurrent with the old building of Haqiqi (Mir) houses and considering lots of similarities (in terms of architectural design and decoration) between these two buildings, the architect of both buildings might have been the same.

The original building belongs to the Zandieh era and in the Qajar era some changes have been made ​​in the winter porch. In the early Pahlavi era, a short porch and a few living spaces have been built on the southern flank of the building and on the southern (summer) porch. During later eras, a wall has been made between the two rooms to reduce their space. It has caused the remaining space on the attached back wall to be converted into barn and the beauty of the main space to be reduced. The decorations used in the building include customaries, specific decorations of wall stove, decoration of the courtyard plastering, including framing and plaster patterns. The building was purchased in 2003 by the mayor and Islamic Council and was given to the Department of Cultural Heritage to become the Museum of Anthropology so that it would change the activity after a complete restoration. It has caused the remaining space on the attached back wall to be converted into barn and the beauty of the main space to be reduced.
