Iran issues new 20,000 rial note

Banknotenews reports that Iran has issued a new banknote of 20,000 rial. The new blue colored note shows ayatullah Khomeini on the front and a building on the back.

From what I can gather from the press release (Google translate isn't fluent in Farsi it seems) the building is an example of a so-called wind tower (Persian: Bâdgir, which literally means windcatcher), an age-old form of air conditioning for houses. From what I'm able to find online the building appears to be the Aghazadeh House in the city of Abarkuh, but please correct me if I'm wrong.


Update: Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is the Aghazadeh House (source):
