There is a treasury of old houses in Isfahan from Safavid era to Qajar period. Unfortunately several old houses were destroyed. Construction of new streets, especially in historic axis of Isfahan which dates back to Safavid and Qajar dynasty is an unforgivable mistake.
The old city was an endless valuable treasury which was unwisely broken and cut into pieces. People who lived in the old city played a terrible role in this regard, in order to approach to modern traffic machineries. Fortunately some of these old houses have survived and repaired. Isfahan Municipality and private sections have repaired old houses since two decades ago. A brief history of few of them is as follows:
