Qavam House (also widely called “Narenjestan e Ghavam“) is a traditional and historical house in Shiraz, Iran.

It was built between 1879 and 1886[1] by Mirza Ibrahim Khan.

During the second Pahlavi era, the House became the headquarters of Pahlavi University‘s “Asia Institute”, directed by Arthur Upham Pope and Richard Nelson Frye. Frye and his family also lived in the house for a while.

The house today is a museum and is opened to the public.
