Safavid era is a glorious period in the history of Iranian urbanization and architecture in which
the gardens and palaces constructed in the mentioned era have been architecturally very important
and their remains such as Naqsh-e Jahan Square, Hashtbehesht garden and palace, Chehelsotoon
palace, etc. have been valuable works in the city texture. However some ruined palaces in Isfahan
are superior to the remained ones .And also it is possible to perceive and complete a fabric and
social illustration of the city and its historical buildings through referring to the literal and historical
texts, pictures and photos remained from the certain period of the city.
During the governance of Mass’oud Mirza Zell-e Soltan, the governor of Isfahan in Qajar era,
inattentiveness to the architecture had been reached to its culmination; to such an extent that the
valuable works of architecture such as Haft Dast palace, Ayeneh Khaneh (Mirror hall) palace
and Namakdan building in Saadatabad garden were ruined by his order. So the visual recreation
of Ayeneh Khaneh has been focused in this research. The preliminary plans drawn in Qajar era
from this Safavid building, and also the plans which involve the changes to the building in Qajar
era, have been drawn secondly in the real scale. The elements and components of this Safavid
palace have been completed through the analysis and comparison of the documents, images and
the mentioned drawings. Final drawings as plans, East, West and South elevations were provided
and the process of palace construction was presented in 3D display. This article is a theoretical
and fundamental research that its basic data was collected from library sources and was analyzed
by the means of deductive approach .In this research the Ayeneh Khaneh has been identified and
analyzed by historical – descriptive method and using authentic documents and content analysis
of the historical texts. And also some analytical illustrations of Ayeneh Khaneh, from its structure
to the architectural details, have been represented by the means of computer softwares. Finally,
the obtained results can provide documentary evidences to future archeological studies and also
contribute to determine the buffer zone of ruined buildings. It also worthily contributes to completion
of the city image in Safavid era and also contemporary period, as well as promotion of
cultural and tourism attractions of the city.
