Palace Chehel Sutun
Iran, Shatlyk town

Palace Chehel Sutun is also called the Palace of Forty Columns. It got its name because of the 20-column peristyle, reflected in the backwater of the pond. Laid down at the end of the reign of Shah Abbas, the palace was finally completed in the second half of the 17th century and served as a place for an audience of foreign ambassadors. Inside the palace there is a mural from the times of previous dynasties, which makes it possible to judge architectural art during their heyday. Four murals belong to the period of the reign of the Sefivids. The rest were created later and glorify the exploits of the other departed monarchs. A good example of this is the image of the victories of Shah Nadir over the Indian army of the XVIII century.
