US Den of Espionage, Tehran
(2/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
See where the Iranian hostage crisis took place during the 1979 Iranian Revolution at US Den of Espionage, today painted with colorful anti-American murals. Back then, a revolutionary guard took hold of the former embassy and used it as a training center. Today, the guard still looks after the building, which now houses a library and a museum--both closed to the public except on rare occasions. At the entrance, inspect the severely damaged but still-standing U.S. seal. The murals, funded by the Iranian government to suggest the political alliance between America and Israel, depict a grotesque skull-faced Statue of Liberty and the U.S. Capitol topped by the Israeli flag. A visit to US Den of Espionage represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Tehran itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Not many things to see apart from the graffiti work, but the power of this place resides in the intoxicating feeling that history is being made by the hour. Don't miss out on it.
