China objects are located in the Chini-Khaneh (or China House), a room originally designed to preserve the Chinaware or porcelain which was dedicated to Shah Abbas by one of the Chinese Emperors to recognize his efforts in making the Silk-Road a safe place. Most of the China were taken by the Russians after the Turkaman-Chay Treaty and now are located in museums of St. Petersburg. However, the monument itself is certainly worth visiting. This museum was inagurated in 1991.
