AMIRIA SQUARE
SANANDAJ

SANANDAJ lies in western IRAN and is the capital city of the State of Kurdestan. The former name of SANANDAJ was SENNEH. SANANDAJ has a population of about 750,000 people and lies between two mountains, Abidar and Kochka-Rash. SANANDAJ has many historical monuments and buildings, including the Divan Moshir Building, which dates back to the QAJAR era and serves as the judiciary headquarters. Built as a representation of the seven firmaments of heaven, it has seven courtyards, each with a separate pool. The Moshir Divan Building is regarded as an example of the Kolah Farangi style of architecture.

The main part of the building is a terrace with Orossi windows, a beautiful ceiling, and two columns made of slab stone. In this complex, elements of European architecture are immaculately integrated with Iranian Style. The entrance gates to the courtyards of the building used to be open all day so that people could come in and fetch water. In the past, SANANDAJ was divided into the governor's quarter, the residential quarter, and the economic quarter and its first structure retains a combination of ancient Iranian and Islamic architecture in which the builders imitated the architecture used in Isfahan.

Because it is at the center of Kurdestan Province, SANANDAJ possesses a bazaar and many state buildings and mosques and it used to be an important economic hub. The city bazaar used to incorporate all production and economic branches and it served the city and surrounding villages. Compared with other regions, SANANDAJ used to export important goods and possessed many wealthy merchants and families, but the rapid change in communications altered SANANDAJ's traditional web. The buildings surviving from these wealthy merchants and families evidence the city's past affluence.
