    1. Its a kind of reflective canopy John which is supported really low over the oldest persian carpet in the world. Its called the Ardabil carpet. Its huge and so delicate that it can only be lit with hundreds of very dim LED’s (on the canopy) for 10 minutes each hour. The rest of the time its kept out of any direct light by the canopy.
      A fascinating place; I pop in when I’m nearby and like to sit on one of the sofas surrounding the rug. Its very quite apart from the gentle murmur of visitors. Lovely atmosphere!
