The Emam-e Jom'eh House


History and Geographical Location

The Khaneh ye Emam e Jom'eh (The Friday Imam's House) is located at 37, Emam e Jom'eh Street, Nasser e Khosrow Avenue in the old Oodlajan quarter of Tehran. This elegant mid-Qajar period mansion is about one century old. It was originally built for Mirza Kazem Khan Nezam ol-Molk — the son of Mirza Aqa Khan Nuri. The latter replaced the progressive Mirza Taqi Khan Amir Kabir as Nasser ed-Din Shah's chancellor and later brought about the great reformer's downfall and murder. Nezam ol-Molk was appointed deputy to the chancellor (his father) in 1853 and also adjutant to Mo'in ed-Din Mirza—then crown prince — and later Minister of the Treasury, Minister of the Army and member of the Shah's consultative council. After the murder of Amir Kabir, his widow Ezzat od-Dowleh — who was the Shah's only full-blooded sister - was married off to Nezam ol-Molk by her brother's order. In later years Nezam ol-Molk's mansion was given to the Emam e Jom'eh (Leader of Friday Prayers) of Tehran. The building comprises an inner section (Andaruni) and an outer section (Biruni). Today, the inner section has been converted into a school and the southern side of the outer section, behind the inner section, is the only part of this section that has been preserved. In order to reach the courtyard one must first pass through a narrow passageway that opens onto the street. The courtyard is paved with bricks and there is an old stone-carved water tank in the middle. The area of the whole complex is 789 square meters. The two-story building has an area of 320 square meters on each floor. The ground floor comprises a summer hall, the Howzkhaneh (fountain room), the northern and southern /vans (verandas), two Gushvarehs ('earrings' or side rooms), one storeroom and staircases that lead to the upper floor. The side rooms are on either side of the fountain room and their floors are paved with bricks. The fountain room is paved with white and blue glazed tiles. In this part of the house the old and decayed wooden doors have been replaced with new ones.
