Located on the north of the capital city (Tehran), the two and a half storey palace encompasses an area of almost 9,000 square meters.

Mohammad Shah Ghajar constructed a small, plain building in the gardens many years ago. After him, Naser Aldin Shah raised the gorgeous Saheb Qaranie Palace. The last building by the Qajar was Ahmad Shahi Pavilion.

The small palace of Fath Ali Shah was devastated when Mohammad Reza Pahlavi ruled Iran, and it was replaced by Niavaran, showcasing the superb design by Mohsen Forooghi, the genius Iranian architect who was rightly inspired by pre-Islamic and post-Islamic architectures.

Initially the majestic building served as a reception place for foreign and high-ranking guests of the court. It was also a residence of Mohammad Reza Shah and his family.

After the Islamic Revolution, the palace was opened to the public in 1365, solar calendar, 1987.

The impressive palace was developed into Jahan Nama Museum, in 1376, Saheb Qaranie Palace, 1377, and Ahmad Shahi Pavilion, 1379, and has subsequently been visited by many history and art enthusiasts.

A true manifestation of contemporary exquisite Persian art and architecture, the modern palace interestingly highlights a series of buildings that will take several hours to explore. The gardens nearby welcome sightseers with beautiful trails and their lively, cheerful ambience.
