3.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
Commemorating the 2,500th anniversary of the Persian Empire, Azadi Tower stands 50 m (164 ft) tall. Built in 1971 in a modernist style with traditional influences, the marble-clad tower combines Sassanid, Achaemenid, and Islamic designs. At night, lights illuminate this iconic Y-shaped landmark, while fountains and gardens adorn its base and a museum underneath it details the Iranian revolution. A copy of the British-held Cyrus Cylinder is on display inside the tower. Climb the stairs or take an elevator to the top for a panorama of Tehran.

  • Meyden-e-Azadi station is the nearest. Huge street vendors square off before facing the bus station, and was crowded with people. To go with the shortest Tower is in the center of the Rotary, because traffic-filled streets that do not cross the two.

  • To the Azaditower, there is then a big construction site. On the tower itself not to the top is on the observation deck, but only one level deeper behind glass and wall columns. The exhibition is somewhat strange, little map. All in all you can save themselves the subway ride or taxi ride. Occurs with 15,000 Balachandra.

  • The Tower is huge and beautiful. There is some renovation work ongoing, so we could not get closer to the tower when we were there. 
  • Freedom Monument is a huge white marble icon at the highway. But it is very difficult to cross the road to the square. No tunnel or footbridge link up there with metro station or surrounding roads. You have to be very careful to walk across the road to reach the Monument as Tehran is notorious for crazy drivers.
  • Long Live Ahli Bayt a.s s friends!Long live Islamic Republic of Iran!Salam from Azerbaijan Republic!
  • Truly an icon. I have always driven by this throwback to the Pahlavi dynasty but never had the chance till today to examine it up close. I will leave the symbolic meanings and what it represents to others but from an ascetic point of view, Azadi square is a masterpiece of architecture with white marble and turquoise ceramic tiles. It is a must see when you are in Tehran.
  • Khomeini kafir shia kafir Jo na mane WO bhi kafir
  • Visited it few days ago for the first time. It's pretty awesome. However, compare to the Milad tower, it gives you less panoramic view at the top. The architecture is nice. So many halls and corridors are underground which are dated back to the construction time. The staff were very polite and explained briefly about the whole building. Worths visiting cause it's one of the Tehran's symbols.
