We only visited the Palace of mirrors and the guns museum and were disappointed by lack of attention and not keeping the Palace clean and not providing detailed explanation of exhibits in English. The palace was covered in dust and little or no explanation of...More

This was my first stop with my guide, and it was very beautiful. The tile work, like in all important spots in Iran, is amazing. Inside, you will find the coronation throne of the Shah, beautiful fabrics and all the trappings of splendour. I recommend...More

This is a palace surrounded by rather ugly 1970s modern office buildings. I guess in Tehran this is one of the must-to-see places. If you are interested in details of colorful ceramics and tiles and some historical events, This is a nice site for 1-2...More
