We are working to protect the heritage of a civilization as large as Islam ... For the first time, we are trying to show the manifestations of Islam in the true sense of the word, that is, what is called Shiism today. Demonstrating what comes from pure and spiritual thoughts ... In the field of art, we chose the three eternal disciplines of calligraphy, architecture and calligraphy to begin the resurrection of the treasure of Islamic heritage. The arts in which Muslims have snatched the lead from the world. The installation of these works in the historical house of Mushir Al-Molk Ansari, the competent minister of Isfahan in the Qajar period, which is a valuable work in the history of Islamic architecture, has added to its beauty. The royal residence and the pool house of the building have created a treasure in the heart of the treasure.
Zol-e-Sultan was initially in charge of the government of Mazandaran, then in 1288 AH, when he was not more than 22 years old, he became the ruler of Isfahan and later ruled over Golpayegan, Khansar, Boroujerd, Kamra, Malayer, Tuyserkan and Nahavand. He then took control of the provinces of Fars, Kurdistan, Lorestan, Bakhtiari, Khuzestan, and Yazd, effectively ruling half of Iran. These days, Mushir can be called the prime minister and his political wisdom.
Mushir rendered worthy services to Zol-e-Sultan and worked in the development of the country, especially Isfahan. Remove the remnants of the Afghan invasion and restore the former prosperity to Isfahan, but at the end of Nasser al-Din Shah's rule, he defended the constitutionalist clergy, opposed the Tobacco Agreement, confronted the demolition of Safavid buildings, and Zol-e-Sultan's view of property. He (including his house), was killed in 1309 AH by Zol-e-Sultan with Qajri coffee.
After Mushir's death, the house was used to establish the Consulate of the Kingdom of Prussia (now part of Germany, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Denmark, Belgium, the Czech Republic and Switzerland). After that, it was bought by one of the merchants of Isfahan named Haj Hossein Charmi and then Haj Mohammad Samaeian. During his tenure, the Iran-Iraq war broke out and Khuzestani refugees settled in their homes. During this period, the decorations of the building were largely destroyed. However, with the end of the imposed war and the recapture of the house, the path of the courtyard continued and until 1396, it was repaired and rebuilt in three stages by the order of Ayatollah Seyyed Hassan Emami.

In 2018, the treasure of Islamic heritage has been opened with the beginning of Nowruz and has started its work.
The treasure is actually located in the mansion of Mushir al-Mulk, whose initial restoration began in the late 13th to early 14th centuries by order of Mirza Habibullah Mushir al-Mulk Ansari. Today, the treasure can be seen inside the royal part and the pool house of the mansion. Due to the expansion of the city and also the proximity of this place to Naghsh Jahan Square and Isfahan Grand Mosque has made this place very valuable and full of history to be located between these two historical attractions of Isfahan and to receive various tourists.
