The Abbāsi House is a large historic house museum in Kashan, Iran. It was built during the late 18th century and belonged to a wealthy glass merchant.[1][2] It is partly converted into a teahouse, a traditional restaurant, and a small shop.[2][3] Other such houses, including the Borujerdi House and the Tabātabāei House, are located nearby.

Structure[edit]

The Abbāsi House consists of several courtyards and multistorey buildings, and is decorated with plaster reliefs, mirror-work, and stained glass.[2] One of the chambers has a ceiling designed with mirror pieces so as to give the impression of a starry sky under the nocturnal glitter of candlelight. Secret passageways were also built into the house.[citation needed]
