Golestan Palace

Reviewed By harry_mdj - Jakarta, Indonesia

The area of the palace is quite small yet the garden is so neat and peaceful with calm vibe. The main hall is mind blowing with the mirror mosaic details (Iranian style). Absolutely stunning. professional camera was forbidden to operate, yet you were allowed to take picture by your smartphone's camera.
The admission fee of this palace was quite expensive for full access to all rooms (IRR 940k by Feb 2018). So I bought ticket for entrance and main hall only for IRR 300k instead.

Tajrish Bazaar

Reviewed By Erfanian - Tehran, Iran

To understand the real culture and atmosphere of the city, there are a few number of places and Tajrish Bazzar is one of them.
The bazzar kept its original structure and didn’t modernize like the other part of the city. It is full of colors, voices, fresh products and old architecture. The advantage of this bazaar is its location which is at the heart of the city.

Jamshidieh Stone Garden

Reviewed By Sweetra - Central Arizona, Arizona

The garden is pretty and you can spend a good amount of time here. The restaurant with same name sits above a few flights of stairs. But it's not the highest one of the garden.
They were not very busy and had a lot of Seating options. We tried olives which were very good. The masto moosir was very good. We both had the joojeh kabab with bones which was very well marinated and tender. They had no kabab barg or koobideh and called their kababs by other names. Very few choices of entrees. We had to pay at the register although we asked for the bill a few times. It was never brought over.
Pricing was ok.

Glassware and Ceramic Museum of Iran

Reviewed By parisa m

It's an old beautiful building downtown, and the artifacts are so beautiful. From 3000-4000 years old to more recent ones. The information is written in English, but I saw a lot of French tourists having family or friends talking about the museum & its artifacts in French. I myself am not a huge fan of visiting history museums, but I really enjoyed this one. It's history & art together, it's small and very well air-conditioned, besides there are seats so you can rest & continue. If you are a visitor to Iran, don't miss this one.

Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art

Reviewed By Majid S - Bandar Abbas, Iran

The world of imagination and creativity and surprise. A place with unique architecture and design that surprises you every season with an attractive international exhibition. I saw Tony Cragg's works titled Roots and Stones. The unique experience was from discovering and moving and imagination. From Recognition and Uniformity and Repetition, Growth and Decoding together.
