Khosro Abad Mansion which is located near Shebli Blvd. in Sanandaj, is a memorial of the reputed Amanollah Khan. Its construction is related to the beginning of the Qajar period and it was a seat of government.
Amanullah Khan Ardalan, the ruler of Kurdistan was the son of a great Khosro Khan. He ordered to build Khosro Abad mansion in 1808. Of course, some believe that the eastern part of the building is related to the Zandieh era. They also attribute its development to Amanullah Khan. Although this mansion was the seat of political and military rule, it was used more as a place for ritual ceremonies and celebrations. Also, the wedding ceremony of “Hosn-e Jahan Khanom”, the daughter of Fath Ali Shah, with Amanullah Khan’s son, was taken in this place.
Today, the mansion is host to large numbers of domestic and foreign tourists as well as different ceremonies and concerts.
This aggregation has been built in the form of internal and external sections, with a beautiful garden between the two. The external building has got two storeys and its entrance door is in the form of octagonal vestibule. There are two sentry chambers on either side. This building is made of brick and stone and it has beautiful plaster and mirror work.
It is interesting to know that texture and composition of materials used in different places of the Khosro Abad mansion, such as palace, kitchens, baths and stables are the same. This is also true about the western, southern eastern walls. It is worth noting that after Amanullah Khan several buildings were also built in this complex. The garden of Khosro Abad complex was also very important. In the past, the garden was surrounded by four streets and 4 Moat.
