Golestan Palace, Tehran Reviews
Apart from the palaces and the glory adjoint inside, the garden and specially the colorful walls decorated by handmade tiles are extraordinarily delightful. Inside each section represents a part of how the Persian King lived and there's a presentation of the dedicated sets that have come from other nations' rulers of the time like England's Queen. It is good for a 3 hour tour around the whole complex and the cafe offers good tea after a long walk.
This is a nice place for a 2hr tour. The garden itself is very nice to stroll around, if weather permits. I thought it was actually a very nice part of the visit. The palace gives a good feel on how the Persian King lived, although it's nothing super extraordinary - still a nice place to go. For the ticketing you are asked to buy a lot of parts of the palace separately, but I think just the main part is absolutely fine. There is a nice café place on the right side of the areal. Pricey, but a good stop for a tea after walking around in the garden
Great place. You can see the art of Iranian mirror working everywhere close to the great bazaar of Tehran which is so old and first shop in Iran
