Khosroabad Mansion was built in 1905 by the ruler of Sanandaj, Amanollah Khan; and is very beautiful and one of a kind.

In addition to the main part, i.e., the monarchial palace with its pillars at the entrance, the garden of the mansion is of special significance, too. The garden was surrounded by four moats and streets as well as different kinds of trees on all sides of the mansion, giving the building special beauty. The garden was practically divided into four gardens. At the moment, only the trees and parts of the surrounding streets have remained.

Today, the historical mansion is host to large numbers of domestic and foreign tourists as well as different ceremonies and concerts.
