It is a great place to visit especially to get into the golden age of prices from Iran. You should have to take few hours to visit this wonderful palace.

The former shah's palace is a must-see sight, there are interesting mirrored rooms and wonderful grand reception rooms, but as a whole I found it a bit disappointing - not as grand or magical as I had expected, more of a working palace, but well worth a visit all the same: palace, garden and café with wonderful cakes.

Do not be put off by a long queue in front of this amazing and history rich attraction. The system is very good and you can get in pretty quickly. If you are a group of people, they ask a payer to queue and the rest of the group can get in and wait for the person who is going... More
