This building was captured by enemy forces at the end of Mehr, 1359 and used as the monitoring center by Iraqi forces during the imposed war. The exterior façade of the building hit by missile shows the damages caused by war and just a part of its interior space repaired in 1375 and opened as the cultural center of holy defense.
