Situated right across the grand bazaar of Tehran, it's a magnificent piece of architecture with tons of mirrors, marble and mosaic. If you are in downtown Tehran and it's not POLLUTED (as is most of the time) it is a must visit.

It's a palace at the heart of Tehran near the grand bazaar with different interesting museums. If you want to come to Tehran I recommend to plan a visit to this place.

The palace is really amazing and the 2 wind towers that brought fresh cool air during the hot summers of Tehran very interesting.

This palace dates back to Qajar dinesty era. When the Iranian kings were impressed with Paris and other European cities, tried to make something beautiful and at the end it turned out to be so gorgeous. Its absolutely a must see in Tehran and is easily accessible via Tehran metro.

Golestan Palace literally means rose palace. Unfortunately I visited in winter when the roses were not in bloom. The palace consists of gardens and many galleries. The entrance fee for foreigners is 150000 IRR (for Iranians it is 30000 IRR). I only visited the main building and thus paid an extra 150000 IRR. The main building has a spectacular mirror... More

There are many galleries within the palace- to see everything it will cost around 20 use. it is the oldest of historic monuments in Tehran- built during 1524-1576, it witnessed historical changes and while it was the official residence of the royal family during the Arg, it became a royal reception place during Pahlavi Period ( 1925-1979). The main Hall... More

The palace is really nice and in a good shape. Belongs to Qajarieh time. There are several palaces around and each has its own specifications. Total together you have to visit it whether you're a citizen or a tourist. Worth to take a tour

You will get plenty of information about what happened during recent 150 years of Iran. You never forget memories of visiting this place.

This palace has much to see even that the government lacks any interest to maintain and improve it. I spent half a day at the palace and it was hardly enough. Be careful the ticket office does not oversell you tickets. They sold me something like 10 tickets and there were only 7 museums open.
