A'ali Qapu Palace

Ali Qapu usually refers to the name for the palaces of Safavid kings. When Iranians were defeated by Ottoman forces, they were forced to move their capital from Tabriz to Qazvin, and then to Isfahn, to avoid occupation of the capital city. At each of these cities, they established a new palace.

Chehel Sotoun, is a pavilion in the middle of a park at the far end of a long pool, in Isfahan, Iran, built by Shah Abbas II to be used for his entertainment and receptions. In this palace, Shah Abbas II and his successors would receive dignitaries and ambassadors, either on the terrace or in one of the stately reception halls.
