Golestan Palace, Tehran

4.5
#1 of 104 in Museums in Iran
A persuasive testament to the wealth and glory of Qajarian kings, Golestan Palace, also known as "Roseland Palace" features carefully landscaped gardens surrounded by impressive historic buildings. Inspired by the grandness of European palaces, Nasser al-Din Shah started to build this complex on the site of an earlier Safavid-era citadel from the mid-19th century. The complex--which is a listed World Heritage Site--boasts 17 edifices, including residential palaces, halls used for coronations and royal weddings, and museums. See the collections of royal portraits, decorative arts, ethnic costumes, and presents from European royalty. Compare the photographs of court life to pictures of everyday life in 19th century Iran. The highlights include a royal throne of yellow alabaster supported by human and demon figures and the famous hall of mirrors.

  • Fortunately, these old buildings and palaces are again actively restored, some apparently got into a little disrepair over time. Interesting place this too.

  • A museum full of tasteful pieces. Unimaginable that so many special things were made in former times. A palace with a special history.

  • What a pretty palace. The great collection of tilling and mirror works. Decoration was eye catching. You will adore this palace after visiting. Unfortunately, there was just one negative point that was the staff, they shouldn't treat with visitors in a bad way.
  • we really loved this palace full of Iranian history. the main rooms are more that well decorated in persian style. the building is mostly decorated with beautiful white marble. at the entrance you can choose the area of the palace you want to visit and pay only for your selection. the prices are really reasonable.
