Ameri Historical House

Kashan Ameri Historical House is one of the most beautiful historical houses in Iran that is located in Sultan Amir Ahmad neighborhood, Isfahan province.The construction of this historical house was done in the Zandieh dynasty and has undergone changes and changes over the years. This beautiful house was built in the Zandieh period before the earthquake of 1778.

Parts of the building were destroyed by the earthquake. In Qajar dynasty, beside restoration of the destroyed parts, different sections were added to the building. It is said that the owner of this house was a man called Ebrahim Khan Kalantar. After that, Saham-ol Saltaneh received this building as a gift for supporting the governor of Kashan in the case of disposal of Agha khan's siege.

After his death, the main mansions and courtyards of the house passed to his eldest son Ibrahim Khalil Khan Ameri, and other parts of the house were inherited by other family members. After that, this house became known as the house of Ameri.

It can be said that the main reputation of the building belongs to the son of Saham Al-Saltanah, namely Ibrahim Khalil Khan Ameri, who expanded and prospered the house due to his power and wealth. But after many years, this beautiful collection fell into disrepair. Finally, in 1955, the cultural heritage officials, after purchasing the historic house of the Ameri in Kashan, began to renovate it. In 1960, the cultural heritage organization with the help of the private sector turned it into a residence and hotel. This complex is among the most beautiful hotels in Isfahan province.
