Qeysarie International Museum Gallery
The Qeysarie bazaar of Isfahan in Naghsh-e-Jahan Square, has been a royal gate to the finest most exquisite and valuable Iranian works of art.
It was built under the order of Shah Abbas in 1602 AD. The style included interpretations and influences of the same model as that of the Othman empire Qeysarie (modern Turkey).
This architecture, the Qeysarie, was constructed by the government and wealthy merchants and is referred to as the main gate to the bazaar in which lightweight but expensive luxury goods are sold.
Due to its architectural and decorative characteristics, Qeysarie portico is geometrically designed.
Qeysarie complex consist of, the portico, Naqara Khana (the ritual orchestral platform), the king's caravanserai, and the royal coin minting and banking centers which most travelers, tourist, and foreign agents have talked about it extensively in their memoirs and travelogues.
Originally, the portico had three floors in the past; however, today only two floors of the architectural marvel have remained.
The present place of Qeysarie International Museum Gallery has experienced different manipulations throughout the history; from Sherbatsara (Traditional Persian Drinks House) to military post of royal intelligence services after the time of Safavids.
But because of its luxuries decorations and unique environment during the Safavaid era, lots of royal and courtly trades and exchanges were set in this location.
Qeysarie International Museum Gallery has been revived back to the Safavid use and spirit.
With seven halls exhibition luxurious art works and more than one hundred elegant masterpieces produced by adroit and elite artists, the Qeysarie International Museum Gallery has been made into a unique museum gallery unlike any other in the country.
In addition to visiting and acquainting with Persian forgotten and mysterious arts in this place, serving drinks and watching Naghsh-e-Jahan square from the most beautiful unique point, the upper floor, is available for educated people and art lovers.
An everlasting impression is intended to be left out of us:
For I don't see this world as an eternal one
Be it that a wise soul would in mercy
Say some prayers for the mystics
