Baqcheh-Jooq Palace History

Baqcheh Jooq Palace garden

Baqcheh-Jooq Palace (English: Joogh Garden) was commissioned by Iqbal-ol-Saltaneh Makui, one of Mozafaredin Shah’s commanders.

This palace is a major tourist attraction due to its location on the Turkey-Europe road route.

The Baqcheh-Jooq palace is situated on a large expanse of gardens, which cover an area of 11 hectares (27 acres).

Currently, the palace is a museum, also known as Kakh Muzeh Maku.

The palace consists of two floors that are made up of numerous halls and chambers, most of them beautifully decorated with paintings, mirror-work, and plaster moldings.

Adding to its beauty is the façade, which contains banisters and statues made of plaster.
