This building is in the old central region of Shiraz, known as Anvari. Shapouri mansion was designed by Abolghasem Mohandesi, the well-known architecture of Shiraz, and built between 1930 and 1935; the owner was Abdolsaheb Shapuori one of the great merchants of Shiraz.

This building is unique and very innovative. Shapouri House and Garden are precious examples of their time and represent the innovation and creativity of plans, facades and structures. The innovations applied on the structure of this garden have turned it into an Iranian-European garden.
