Royal Palace of Afif-Abad Garden
Located in the affluent Afif-Abad district of Shiraz, the complex was constructed in 1863. It contains a former royal mansion, a historical weapons museum, and a Persian garden, all open to the public.
Afif Abad Garden is one of the oldest gardens in Shiraz.
During the Safavid Period, it was used as a palace by the Safavid Shahs.
The current main building was constructed by Mirza Ali Mohammadkhan Ghawam II (Persian: ميرزا علي محمدخان قوام الملك دوم) in 1863. He bought a nearby ghanat to water his garden. After his death, the garden was eventually inherited by Afife, thus being called Afif Abad.
In 1962, it was restored by the army. It is now functioning as a weapons museum.
