Water-mills, as ecological crafts, were not limited to the function of turning grain into flour but also brought about social relations, economic exchange, cultural contact, and people connection. The Kahak Water-Mill is an unknown building from the early Qajar period, located in the Marzdaran neighborhood of Tehran, as evidence of the lifestyle of ancient Tehran, Iran. Today, the development of Tehran has left the building abandoned, and the originality and integrity of the building have been damaged. This study's main purpose is to recognize the Kahak Water-Mill building in terms of history, function, and architecture. Literature reviews and field studies have been used to collect the necessary information. Kahak Water-Mill, as part of a complex, was an important place in Kahak village, and today, losing parts of that complex, including the garden and the connection of components such as the water with the mill, has blemished its identity and the complex with the damaged connections must be restored.
