Golestan Palace is the most famous palace of Iran.
Golestan Palace Intro Construction began on the site from the time of King Abbas of the Safavid dynasty, and was under construction until the time of Qajar and Nasser al-Din Shah, who made many changes to it under the influence of his European travels. It has historically witnessed very important events such as the Constitutional Revolution and the Pahlavi First and Second Coronations. There are also beautiful artworks such as the Marble Throne, the tombstone of Nasser al-Din Shah Qajar, who moved from Shahrari to the palace, and works by Kamal al-Molk and other Iranian and foreign artists. Beauty attractions such as Shams ol-Emareh, Mirror Hall and Emarat-e-Badgir (Building of windcatchers) are also of great interest to tourists.
Golestan Palace is more than 440 years old. The palace was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on July 2, at the 34th annual meeting of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
In the exterior and between the two towers, there is a clock that is said to have been the first hour to enter Iran.
The main entrance to the Shams-ol-Emareh mansion is on the west side of the Golestan Palace, which is built next to the citadel wall.
