In the nearby museum at Robat Karim a poster with a description and photographs of this ice house was found. However, when checking with my (rough) field distances and dimensions, it is found that the museum information is not correct, and my field values were recorded.
Only the ice house dome seems to have been restored, the walls are left to decay. So National Registration does not mean conservation of walls.
The ice house is on a flat open plain with fertile fields around. There is a cucumber field on the north side.
The ice house complex now appears part of a private property with no access, fenced off by supplementary garden wall.
