Hasht Behesht Palace in Isfahan was built in Shah Esmaeil I era as a part of Naqshe Jahan Garden. In the era of the next kings, this garden was divided into smaller pieces so that Hasht Behesht Garden was totally separated from Naghshe Jahan Garden. In the year 1670, Shah Soleyman Safavi (one of the Safavid Kings) ordered to build a palace near this garden.
The reason for naming this as Hasht Behesht Palace is that 8 wives of Shah Soleyman lived in this palace. 4 of them lived on the ground floor and 4 of them on the first floor. Hasht Behesht Palace which was once called “the most beautiful palace of the world” is a place of interest for tourists and world travelers due to its beautiful designs and decorations.
Hasht Behesht Garden is located in the western part of Naqshe Jahan Square and Imam Hossein subway station is located in the north of it. Both Chehel Sotoun Palace and Aali Qapu Palace are close to Hasht Behesht Palace.
