  • Historical building of Rakhtshooy-khaneh has been established in the center of a crowded, old, residential area of Zanjan named Abbas-Gholi-khan. This monument is surrounded by high walls like a fort. This complex has been built by order of Mr.Alikbar Tofiqi, the mayor in 1928. It was the place of laundry. The custodianship and directorship of this building were in front courtyard with several rooms. The main part of the complex who is his special for laundry consists of four sections. The first section is a reservoir with dimensions of 17 meters length, 11,5 meters width, 8 meters height and the capacity of 740 cube meters. The second section is a place like terrace where the main wash house is over looked by this place. This part is like a dais and a dominant position of control. The third section is the main part of the wash house, it is a saloon with dimensions of 13/7 meters width, 62 meters length and 677/60 meters area which is designed and constructed with very beautiful perspective. There are two consecutive rows of arches and vaults which are separated by stone columns. This space along 11 columns had divided the saloon into two symmetrical parts. The distance between two columns is 5/17 meters. The place of washing consists of four units of small basins and water passages around the basins. There are borders and separating lines made of various kinds of Travertine stones which divide the basins and passages. According to rather comprehensive studies done in the field of Iran's geography, such a complex with mentioned functions has not been observed anywhere.

Zanjan probably dates back to the Sassanid period.Conquered by the Muslims in the 7th century, obliterated bythe Mongols and by Tamerlane in the 13 th and 14 thcenturies, and having a vivid record in civilization, culture, artsand sciences, Zanjan has experienced both glory andhardship. The city is know for the Zanjan upheaval, resultingin what was by far the largest of the battles between themembers of the Bahai movement and Persian troops duringthe late 1840s and early 1850s, involving perhaps threethousand Bahais and thirty thousand government troops andirregulars.Zanjan, capitala provinciei cu acelaşi nume (celebră pentrustrugurii fără sâmburi) a fost fondat probabil în epocaSassanidă. Cucerit pe rând de arabi (sec.VII) de mongoli şi deTamerlan (sec.XIII şi XIV) istoria sa a fost destul dezbuciumată.
