Dating back 1759, this building was a part of the interior residence of Karim Khan Zand. The basic structure of the  Khalvat-e-Karim Khani is similar to Takht-e-Marmar Like the Latter, it is a teraace (iwan). There is small marble throne inside the terrace. The structure is much smaller than Takht-e-Marmar and it has much less ornamentation. There was once a small pond with a fountain in the middle of this terrace. Water from a subterranean stream flowed from the fountain into the pond and was later used to irrigate the Palace grounds.
