The magnificent legacy of the Qajar era, Golestan palace complex, is placed right near the Grand Bazaar of Tehran. The intricate delicacies patterned on the walls of the backyard, its mirrored hall, and its overwhelming architecture and the tile paintings all over the complex are the reasons to put this place in the UNESCO World Heritage list. Its gorgeous garden, fountains, and the Persian symmetrical design of the structures add a million to the beauty of the place. Among 17 structures in this complex, you cannot miss the major hall, the mirror hall, Badgir building (wind catcher), and the Marble Throne (Takht-e Marmar), where Reza Shah self-coroneted.
