Tizno Historical House in Dezful, Southwest of Iran - Tourism news

The house located in Qaleh (fortress), the oldest neighborhood of Dezful, underwent major renovations during the Qajar (1785-1925) and early Pahlavi (1925-1979) eras.

The house has two stoops on either side of the main door where guests who wanted to see the owner but not come as well as passersby could sit to rest.

The door of the house opens to a Hashti (vestibule) that leads to a Birouni, the space used by men and guests, on the left and an Andarouni, the space used by the women and servants, on the right.

The two-story house has a large courtyard, delicate stained glass and brickwork decorations and a large balcony with stoops where the owners would sit in cooler months of the year.

The house also has a basement named Shovadan which functioned as an air-conditioned summer living room. Shovadans are a feature of Dezful architecture that help air condition the house and are usually connected to the Shovaadans of neighboring houses. Tizno House is a registered National Heritage Site.
