Golestan Palace

Although the history of the Golestan Palace has been on the time of Shah Abbas Safavi and part of his itinerary, it proves that in the following series, there is also a more attention that in the Karimkhan Testament we have been among the years 1760 to 1767.

This collection also has been made with a divankhanh of fundamental changes. However, the real importance of the Citadel can be attributed to Agha Mohammad Khan Qajar era.

At the end of the period of Zandieh and after the death of the Karimkhan of Iran’s internal crisis, the Qajar was led to the southern slopes of Alborz, provincial Tehran and Damghan, and tried to gradually open its way to the Fars State Center and the power of Zandieh.

Agha Mohammad Khan returned to Tehran after being overcome of the Shamcurrent Khan Zand in March 1795 and in Nowruz 1796, the name of the king of Iran.

This move was royal to the importance of the Arg-e Khan more than before and in the Covenant of Fath Ali Shah Qajar for his investment in this city (at the same time with Napoleon) and the Shokouhmand of this king, the Golestan Palace had more development and arastegi better experience.

In the Nasereddin Testament of the Shah Qajar of Golestan Palace (nearly 49 years) and his visit as the first King of Europe in three trips to the years 1873, 1878 and 1889.

Although during the last three kings of the dynasty of Qajar (Mozaffaredin Shah, Mohammad Ali Shah and Ahmad Shah Qajar) to the extinction of this royal citadel in terms of architecture, but its history with extraordinary political events, such as the Constitutional revolution and the consequences of it, was Ajin, which formed a separate part of the historical memory of the Iranian nation.

Royal Arg in the years following the extinction of the Qajar dynasty and on the work of the Pahlavi dynasty saw the first Pahlavi (May 4, 1888) and the second Pahlavi (November 4, 1928), and some of the changes and appropriation in his own tissue, we know them inadmissible and unoperative.

Nevertheless, the Golestan Palace, with a high-end memory of 442 years, is one of the most unique historical n set of Iran, this series does not only indicate an important part of history the art of this boundary and the canvas, but it has become a unique collection of purity and the most important part of the history of Iran due to its exceptionally effective events.

Although the Golestan Palace is currently osati equal to 5.4 hectares (one tenth of the initial extent) in a part of the city of Tehran, party of the urban limbs are broken, and around it is full of new and high-and anonymous performance homogenize with him, Ulikan should be to abandon this valuable collection of the regional problems in which it is located and the Golestan Palace complex to be the foundation of the region and historical context which includes the National museum, the field of homework….

Farah Abad Mansion (seraglio):

The Golestan Palace was associated with several in the narrow corridors of the Shrine of the House, which was also called Viscus and Farah Abad.

Prior to the reign of Naser Shah mansion Viscus the same buildings and chambers of Fath-Ali Shah and says the deceased Maeer Almamalek of this part of the Royal Bitat was not a great breadth but the way of building was joy.

In the early years of Naser Shah, which was given significant changes in the Royal Citadel, the guidance of the Al Safay of Nazareth in the Viscus was created by Haj Alikhan Chamberlain al-Dawlah and to the year 1855.

After the markers of the Shah’s shrine, he was forced to grow and have gone to the place of the viscus, and they had to regain a larger scale in the year 1882. And with the stewardship of Agha Ebrahim Khan Amin Censur, he had ruined all the institutions made by contrast al-Dawlah and added to the extent of viscus.

Once the Viscus buildings were finished in the garden Duraround the yard and the courtyard was established in 1886 .-Naser, the Shah was determined to kakhi a new style in the middle of the garden.

The stewardship of this palace was also given to Mohammad Ibrahim Khan Amin Censur.

The construction of the palace lasted for one year and was opened on April 3 1887

Unlike the other, the house was decorated with a European-style building that was built on the palace of the Ottoman Sultan Garden.

The entire buildings of Viscus mansion were destroyed during the Pahlavi period and assigned to the Ministry of assets.

Exit mansion

In the past time, almost connected to the northeast side of Shams Alamare, a large and long mansion of Golestan Garden was divided into two parts, which was called the outlet mansion.

The building from east to West includes: Museum room, Golestan Mirror Hall, the House’s Fund and royal Rkhtdarkhaneh.

The grounds of the palace had been established at the time of Agha Khan, but to the year 1801, the Shah was completed.

After the return of a larger-than-a-year-old museum, al-Din Shah established the building in 1879… it turned into a large lake or pool, which connects the swimming pool of the windward and Shams Alamare and the pool front of the main palace.

The pool is filled in the early first Pahlavi reign and is now dedicated to green space.

The name of the Golestan Palace of the name of the room or the hall of Golestan Fath-Shahi, which was in the outlet mansion, was taken through the name except to the whole of all the royal palaces, but sometimes the new mirror Hall also called the Golestan Hall.
