The building of the Old Post Office of Birjand is a late Qajar era (1785-1925) and early Pahlavi (1925-1979) structure. The structure was used as an arsenal in the Qajar era. It later became the Post Office of Birjand and was in use until 1982. Brick, mudbrick, stucco and clay mortar are the main materials used in the construction of the structure. The entrance of the Old Post Office is located on the eastern side of this two-story building. Both levels of the building have several rooms and corridors with brickwork decorations and ornamental arches. The building was renovated by Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO) and is now used as the ICHHTO office in Birjand. This building was registered as a National Heritage Site in 2006.
