It has three main parts: Hussainiya, Zaeynabiya and Abbasiya. Museum of Anthropology of Kermanshah, and Clothes and Jewelry Museum of Kermanshah are located in Abbasiya.


To build this Tekyeh, experts and artisans had to stay and live in Kermanshah for a while. The drawings were done by Abulghasem Mani Kermanshahi, the tiles were made by Hasan Kashi Paz Tehrani, and the architect was Ostad (Master) Muhammad or as his nickname was "Ostad Siah" (The Black Master). The signatures and the names of masters who worked in this Tekyeh can be seen on the tiles. A tile furnace was built there as well to make the job of the tilework masters more convenient.

According to the documentation on the walls, the tiling project of this Tekyeh began in around 1941 and also in some parts we see the date 1958. Hence, it seems that it took seventeen years to finish the tilework of the entire Tekyeh.
