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.

  • Ones you are there, you will see a lot interesting things about Shah and his family. How they leave 40 years ago and a lot of different experience. 
  • Well, they lived there then, the royal family. Much of the pomp and circumstance is gone. You see just about where they sometimes stayed. Oh well not very special, but we were in the neighborhood. Something to eat or drink in the only restaurant, bizarre life. Take something with it. Sit on a bench.
