Photos by Hamed Akhlaghi, Mehr News Agency

Atroosh House in Shiraz, central Iran, belongs to Qajar era (1794-1925). This historic house, currently occupied by Afghan refugees, is considered one of the unique buildings in terms of tile work and the paintings on the ceilings.  Unfortunately, many of the priceless tiles and decorations of the house have been damaged or stolen; unless the authorities act soon, the future for Atroosh House is very grim.
