This 150-year-old building is one of the best-preserved houses in yazd. With the Badgirs (wind towers), traditional doors, stained-glass windows, elegant archways and alcoves distinguish this attraction as one of the city’s grandest homes.
It is worth noting the particularly delicate white-and-cream plaster work, traced with slivers of mirror, that decorate the courtyard Iwans. The merchant family who built the mansion have long gone, and it’s now home to a set of archives. A wealthy merchant family, the Laris sold their courtyard house to the government and the Iranian Cultural Heritage Organisation recently completed restoration work and opened it to the public.
