Tour description:

Golestan palace:  During Safavid period and when Shah Tahmasb the 1st was the king the complex was built (from1524-1542). There was a Safavid citadel on this site, but the complex only became a palace in the reign of Karim khan Zand. The palace was more used and expanded by the Qajar kings when it turned into a residence for the royal family. There have also been some changes in some parts of the complex during Pahlavi dynasty. Some of the halls of the palaces in the northern part of the complex, which are open to public, include museum hall, mirror hall, brilliant hall, ivory hall and the crystal hall. The garden of the complex enjoys the elements of the Persian garden, so if you would like to feel the atmosphere of the Persian gardens in Tehran you shouldn't miss the garden of Golestan Palace.

National Garden (Baq-e-Meli) Gateway: This high Gateway was built as a gate for entering the Mashq (military practice) square in the 1922 AD during the time of the first Pahlavi king. Later on when the Mashq square was transformed to the first public garden named Baq-e-Meli(National Garden), the name of the gate was also changed to "the National Garden Gateway". This gateway looks like the old gateways of Tehran. At the present time, the area is in the midst of central post office,  police Headquarters and the Civil status office, but still can be visited to remind us of the days it has been prosperous. 

Glass and Ceramic Museum (Abgineh Museum): This impressive museum is housed in a beautiful building dating back to Qajar times. The building itself can be really interesting to visit for its glamorous design which is based on different Iranian historical eras. The glassware, ceramics, earthenware and china wares dating from 2nd millennium BC are organized chronologically into galleries. The most ancient glaswares in the museum date back to 2 millennium BC. In this museum you can even get some explanations about the Persian glass-blowing tradition which is really unique.

Carpet Museum: The museum houses more than 100 pieces which are from all over the country, dating from16th AD century to the present day. The structure of the loom-shaped building is Octagonal and enjoys the modern architectural style. This museum has been specially designed for keeping the carpets correctly and scientifically. The museum has been active since 1977 AD.

Contemporary Arts Museum: The building of Contemporary Art Museum was inaugurated in 1977 AD. Its architectural structure is a combination of Iranian traditional style and a modern touch.
