Malijak(Aziz al-Soltan) House
Malijak House or Aziziyyeh House is a mansion in two floors with a beautiful porch (veranda) facing the south. It tells us a nice combination of traditional and modern architecture that have historical links with the Parliament.
Although there are many references to the House in historical sources and documents, nobody knows the precise date of its construction. Nevertheless, we knows that Nasser al-Din Shah donated the house to GholamAliKhan Aziz al-Soltan in 1892 and it has been called Aziziyyeh or Malijak, Aziz al-Soltan’s nickname, from then on. Akhtar al Dawlah-daughter of Nasser-al-Din Shah and Aziz al-Soltan's wedding ceremony was held at the House in 1894.
When Baharestan Palace was handed over to the Parliament in 1906, talks about giving other mansions at Baharestan Garden to the Parliament began. It probably was between 1916 and 1921 that Aziz al-Soltan sold the House to Dr. Mirza AsadollahKhan Kordestani. He was the member of the Majles in the second period and then he became Minister of Post and Telegraph. Finally, with the efforts of Arbab Keykhosro Shahrokh, the eastern part of Baharestan Garden and its buildings, including Aziziyyeh House and the first and old building of the Majles Library(currently Iranian Studies Library were purchased in the fifth period of the National Consultative Assembly(12 February 1924-11 February 1926).
