Qazvin contains several notable buildings from the Safavid era, dating back to the period in which it was capital of Persia. Perhaps the most famous of the surviving edifices is the Chehelsotoon (Kolah Farangi) mansion, which today is used as a museum in the town centre.

Here are some photos of more of the city’s Safavid-era constructions, from private residences to mosques and other public buildings. Photos courtesy of Mehr.
