Chai Khoran Palace to be converted to reception complex

Chai Khoran Palace in Chalous, Mazandaran Province, has been ceded to the private sector for conversion into a reception complex, said Mehdi Izadi, the deputy head of Mazandaran Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Department.


Izadi said Chai Khoran Palace, dating back to First Pahlavi Era, has been handed over to private investors for 10 years. “The contact between the private investors and the government can be extended on mutual consent,” he said.

He said Manuchehri and Ramdani Houses are also ready to be ceded to private investors through public tender.

The official hoped that a rise in the participation of private investors would contribute to economic growth.

Izadi put the number of historical sites in Mazandaran at 700.

“Iran Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts, and Tourism Organization owns 45 out of the total 700 mansions of the province while the rest belong to Religious Endowment Organizations and other state bodies,” he said.

Chai Khoran Palace was registered on the National Heritage List in 1975.

Chai Khoran extends over an area of about 4,000 square meters. It is a villa but has a basement.

The ancient building, which consists of two large halls as well as balconies, boasts magnificent plaster works.
