Ziaiyeh School, also known as Alexander Prison, is the work of Molana Ziya al-Din Hossein Razi. The construction of this school started in 631 AH and it continued by his sons and the construction ended in 705 AH.

There is a sanctuary in the bedchamber of the school and there are porches around the school. The adobe dome of this building, designed with moldings and watercolor paintings is very eye catching. This kind of architecture dates back to the time the Mongols ruled Iran.
