In 1987, during his first visit to Boulder, Mayor Maksud Ikramov announced that Dushanbe planned to present our city with a Teahouse to celebrate the establishment of sister city ties. In Central Asia, teahouses serve as gathering places where friends meet to talk or play chess over a cup of tea.Many teahouses are traditionally decorated with Persian art, characterized by the use of motifs from nature - stellar, solar, and floral, by the repetition of patterns, by form over representation and pattern over detail, and by lavish decoration and color. Our Teahouse accurately reflects this artistic tradition that dates back nearly 2,000 years.From 1987 -1990, more than 40 artisans of Tajikistan created the decorative elements of our Teahouse, including its hand-carved and hand-painted ceiling, tables, stools, columns, and exterior ceramic panels. Often these skills are handed down from generation to generation within families. Lado Shanidze served as chief architect.
