Definitely top five activities in Tehran. A green garden embracing a historical complex. A Great collection of Persian style artworks, paintings, marble carvings, tile and plaster works, mirror works, woodcarvings, and lattice windows, all in one place. A good advice for escaping from the hussle of of Tehran Bazaar which is nearby. The guards at the entrance and some staff were a bit down and not welcoming but it was pretty understandable considering the situation in Iran. Just put on a big smile and it will brighten up their faces too. Reception hall and Hall of Mirrors were my favorites from the complex.

A Qajar Palace that was the seat of the monarchy for around a century, Golestan Palace has some beautiful rooms, artefacts, and buildings. It is particularly noted for the mirror mosaics that coat some of the rooms.

Golestan Palace is one of the magnificent and very beautiful palaces in Iran, which is very good for a two-hour photography program and has easy access.

Golestan Palace is the only UNESCO World Heritage Site of Tehran.
The complex consists of 17 palaces, halls, and museums located in a gorgeous garden.
The most important parts of the Golestan Palace that I enjoyed the most are: Shams-ol Emareh, Marble Throne (Takht-e Marmar), Mirror Hall (Talar-e Ayne), and The building of Windcatchers (Emarat-e Badgir).
I also recommend enjoying a delicious Persian meal at the restaurants near the Grand Bazaar (Bazaar is close to the Golestan Palace). I have tried the traditional dishes in Sharaf ol Eslam and Shamshiri restaurants; Both were excellent.

It took us two half days to see whole the Palace. Not that it is only a beautiful Palace with a lot of unique tile works and mirror works in its architecture, but also it is full of master pieces of Kamal-ol-molk's paintings and photo galleries and anthropology museum.
Beside these it has a very cosy Chaikhaneh (Tea house) and Sofrekhaneh (Restaurant) and a very beautiful Garden. There are also couple of carriages ran by horse. The whole palace visit would cost 3 euros and a pot of tea is very cheap (less than one euro). The lunch which is a perfect one is also less than 6 euro. Unbelievable.
You can reach there by Metro very comfortably. You should take the lines that are heading from Imam Khomeini stop to 15 Khordad stop and there the Palace is just in front of a very unique and old Bazaar. There are also very nice restaurants in Bazar. The one that is quite near to Palace is Moslem restaurant that has nice Chelokababs. I chose Kabab-e-barg and liked it.

It is not worth spending money on visiting all parts. The stuff is not presented appropriately and some of them are placed too far that you can not see them clearly.
