One of the lasting legacies of every nation is mural paintings, a number of which exist in Iran as well. Governments and people are responsible for protection of these works. This task is neglected in several eras which has led to damages, loss of originality, and sometimes destruction of these works. This article aims to examine the damages to the Safavid period murals in Isfahan In terms of painting and visual arts. Itseeks to answer the following questions: firstly, what factors cause the most damages to the originality of these works? And secondly, works located in which palace have been most damaged? This descriptive-analytical study is conducted through comparative analysis, field observations and interviews with masters and restorers, to focus on the issue of restoration and originality of murals in Ali Qapu and ChehelSotoon Palaces. The findings show that although human and even political factors of the post-Safavid periods affected the damage process, and despite the fact that the repair works were carried out with different methods and with the intention of restoration and protection, crude restorations have been effective in further damages to the images. Also, in the samples studied in these two palaces, the authenticity of the paintings in the palace of ChehelSotoon was deemed more undermined.
