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. The complex originated in the late 18th century, when Fath-Ali Shah used it as a summer home, and numerous buildings were added to it until the overthrown of the Iranian monarchy in 1979. 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.
