Golestan Palace History

Golestan Palace gardens

Golestan Palace is one of the buildings within the walls of Tehran’s Historic Arg (citadel). This is the oldest historical monument in Iran and was rebuilt to its current form by Haji Abol-hasan Mimar Navai in 1865.

This palace was the royal residence of the Qajar dynasty. Several royal ceremonies were held in this palace during the Pahlavi dynasty (1925 – 1979).

The Golestan palace underwent a serious restoration that continues to this date. However the restoration project doesn’t affect visitors, and the palace can be visited by tourists.
