This house is built in early first Pahlavi era and it is located near Bagh Shomal region of Tabriz. A mixture of stone and brick has made the house and it differentiates it from other houses of Tabriz. During the World War II and in the reign of Russian occupation of Tabriz, it was Iraqi Embassy.
Among those places in Tabriz that could take to history and present you with an adventurous travel is historical houses that among them Ordoubadi house is of special importance.
The total area of the house is one thousand and six hundred sqm, the superstructure is in three floors and if you imagine that this beautiful house with 85 year age lacks any function, you make a mistake. Nowadays this building is used as the National Documents Center of North West Iran and it is a museum of Constitution Revolution era, since Tabriz was the residence place of the Prince Abbas Mirza and it was the most important political city, therefore central government used to pay more attention to Tabriz. Although in comparison with other houses of Ordoubadi house is not as old as other houses of Tabriz and the building date of the house goes back to reign of Reza Khan, but from the standpoint of architecture it is of great importance. Considering that most historical houses of Tabriz are made of brick, Ordoubdi house is the only house that is a combination of brick and stone.
Although Tabriz is a historical city, and cultural heritage experts say that there are 300 historical house in the city, but the age of most of them is not more than 200 years, since during last one thousand years more than 11 terrible earthquakes has destroyed the city and many historical works has vanished. Because of it nowadays there is no sign of glorious palaces such as the palace of Ghazan Khan, Rab-e Rashidi, Hassan the King square etc.
