It's indeed a complex of buildings that were initially used as summer residence of Fath Ali Shah. Also Pahalavi dinasty used to live there, and on the main building you may find the bedroom of Reza Pahlavi's son. In another building you can admire the private contemporary art collection of Soraya with several masterpieces. Impressive.

A lovely and humble palace for the last Iranian Shah Reza Pahlavi. The roof is impressive. It could be open and see the sky. A lot of remainingsof imperial family inside the palace.Military uniforms, dresses, paintings.It worths a visit. Far from the city,about 20 min by car from Sadabaat Palace.

For a palace this place is quite humble. It is however very interesting as it is where the last king brought up his family in the 1980's. There are several buildings in the complex to look at.

Beautiful grounds and in the middle is a huge Bahau style building - reminiscent of a Russian structure rather than anything elegant. This rather stark building on the outside then gives in to a beautifully furnished interior - one that reflects the taste of the last Shah and his wife Farah. Tastefully done up with a 1960/70's vibe - the... More

The entrance is at the bortom of the hill, so don't be fooled by the larger exit doors. You buy all tickets at once, and at least visit the two first houses. Walking up there's beautiful trees! The house to the left was made for the crown prince to live in, and the very modern house to the right was... More

Entry prices depend on the number of buildings visited and can be as little as 150000rials (4USD) for... More

It was unexpectedly not too big and not too luxurious for a king. I found the carpets and some of the Antiques really nice. In the Garden were the trees so tall and so mysterious.
