Exquisite tile work, mirrored hallways and rooms, elegance of a bygone era. Golestan Palace will make you wish you were a Persian prince/princess. Well worth a visit when you're in Tehran.

Museum palace used to exhibit 19th century building decoration and 19th and 20th century gifts to the successive kings of this beautifull country. 9 different chapters which you can choose and pay separately, although this does not guaranty the exhibition is open. Nice surroundig park.

Separate tickets to each of the different buildings that make up the whole palace. Pick at least 4. Check out the wind towers-- an ancient form of A/C-- wind is captured, routed to basement pool of water, then circulates through building.
