In 1987, Dushanbe, Tajikistan presented Boulder with a handcrafted Persian teahouse to celebrate their sister city union. The Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse is an architectural work of art adorned with vibrant colors and intricate details, and is the only one of its kind in the Western Hemisphere.

The teahouse was meticulously handcrafted by over 40 artisans in several Tajikistan cities from 1987 to 1990, shipped to Boulder where it remained in storage until 1997 and opened with a gala celebration on May 15, 1998.
The focal point of the Teahouse is a magnificent fountain depicting seven young women cast in bronze, based on the 12th century poem, "The Seven Beauties" by Nizami Ganjavi.
