Take a peek into the life of Persian royals at Niavaran Palace Complex, a series of residences built for various Shahs of the Qajar and Pahlavi dynasties.

Take a tour of the lush garden and the historic mansions to see how the Shahs lived, and admire an array of relics, art pieces, elegant furniture, and personal items that belonged to members of the royal families.
