The current capital of Iran, Tehran is a modern city with a thousand riches hidden in the heart of a megalopolis of nearly 16 million inhabitants. A small trading town, it developed after the destruction of Ray – Rages for the Elders – during the Mongol invasion of 1228, but only became capital under the Safavids in the 16th century. The dynamism of the city is reflected in this country of 85 million inhabitants. The buildings inexorably nibble the slopes of the Alborz, a powerful massif separating the city from the Caspian Sea. The pyramid of Damavand, which rises to 5,671 meters above sea level, measures Tehran with its eternal snows.
The National Museum of Iran
The National Museum of Iran contains some of the most valuable and important artefacts from Ancient Persia (dating 5000 years BC) and post-Islamic Persia (800 AD). The must-sees are Salt Man, a prince who has been naturally mummified in a salt mine for 2,000 years. Her clothes and jewelry are still intact. In addition, there are statues of Parthian kings and many examples of Persian columns and structures. The building itself is a 1930s Iranian masterpiece.
Golestan Palace, the oldest historic building in Tehran. The complex consists of 17 palaces, museums and halls. The Golestan palace is one of the most visited places in Tehran, the Qajar royal palace, which is an oasis of coolness and tranquility in the heart of the city. The architecturally simple main building houses a museum displaying Qajar-era objects in the dictatorial style of the last century. One of Tehran’s most well-organized museums is in the Golestan Gardens, a one-story pavilion on the right, not far from the entrance. It contains about 30 showcases that showcase almost everything related to Iran. It defines the important originality of Iran’s life in the various states of the country.
