Background

Azeri elders gathered in the house of Haj Mehdi Kouzakani after the ballot box was closed by Mohammad Ali Shah Qajar. It was also the site of meetings of the Tabriz Association and the Mujahideen Command Center during the two-month siege of Tabriz, as well as the center for the decision to lower the flags of surrender to Shah Qajar. Some of the most important people who have worked in this area are Sattarkhan, Baqrokhan, Saqololeslam Tabrizi, Haji Mirza Aqa Farashi and the founder of this collection, Haj Mehdi Kouzakani.

This place was founded in 1868 by order of Haji Mehdi Kuzakani. The house has two floors with interior and exterior sections, built in the Qajar era architecture style. Haj Mehdi was a merchant in the Tabriz market. With the rise of the constitutionalist movement in Tabriz, Haj Mehdi joined the constitutionalists and became one of the main sponsors of the constitutional revolution. He provided the House with constitutionalists for a meeting of constitutional leaders and to publish and distribute anti-Qajar anti-government statements. After the Second World War and occupation of Azerbaijan by the Soviet Red Army, the house became the center of the meeting of the Azerbaijani Democratic Cultures in 1945 and 1946.
