  • The Shaahi family's prehistoric "everyday living" was interesting to get to the peek, the rooms and the fine furniture was enough, as did the Glitchman. The huge electrical organ of the music corner was a bit lost. The children's rooms with their toys were also curiosities.

  • During a stay in Tehran, be sure to visit this wonderful palace. Plastic shoes are distributed in front of the entrance, as you are not allowed to enter the palace with the normal shoes.
