  • Ali Qapu is a Safavid palace in Isfahan, Iran which was originally designed as a vast portal in the early 17th century and then it turned to a six-story palace with a series of additional architectural elements over a sixty year period to accommodate court functions. Building materials used for the structure of the Ali Qapu are mud and baked brick based on the foundation of the quarried stones. Vaulted ceilings of mud brick are richly decorated with painted, carved stucco and cutout Muqarnas in the sixth floor ‘music room’. As it can be seen cutouts on the surfaces of the Muqarnas in the shapes of ceramics and glassware have created delicate and fine surfaces which can also meet the acoustical characteristics of a complex and unique Helmholtz cavity absorber due to their various forms and disparate air volumes behind them.
  • Ālī Qāpū ( Turko-Persian word for Imperial Gate ) is a grand palace in Isfahan , located on the western side of the Naqsh-e Jahan Square .and was originally designed as a vast portal. It is forty-eight meters high and there are seven floors, each accessible by a difficult spiral staircase. In the sixth floor music room, deep circular niches are found in the walls, having not only aesthetic value, but also acoustic. The name Ālī Qāpū, from Arabic Ālī, "Imperial or Great", and Turkic Qāpū meaning "gate", was given to this place as it was right at the entrance to the Safavid palaces which stretched from the Maidan Naqsh-i-Jahan to the Chahār Bā gh Boulevard . The building, another wonderful Safavid edifice, was built by decree of Shah Abbas the Great in the early seventeenth century. It was here that the great monarch used to entertain noble visitors, and foreign ambassadors. Shah Abbas, here for the first time celebrated the Nowruz (New Year's Day) of 1006 AH / 1597 C.E.
