This small, graceful building follows an octagonal plan and was originally built as a residence of Karim Khan Zand.

It includes a central dome-covered hall, four elevated recesses (Shah-Neshin) and several chambers. Karim Khan's Tomb is in the Eastern recess.

This building served as a museum from 1926 to 1971, when it was closed for ten years, to be eventually reopened in 1981.

The beautiful stalactite works executed here are unique in their kind.
