The Golestan Palace, dating back to 440 years, is one of the most exclusive historical collections in Tehran.
The use of the name of Golestan in this collection is based on the foundation of the Golestan Hall, which was based on the Qajar monarchy of Agha Mohammad Khan in 1216 hijri.
The Palace has been changed from the Safavid era to contemporary times. Although the foundation of the Golestan Palace dates back to the time of Shah Abbas Safavi in 998 hijri, and the construction of four gardens inside the fence of Shah Tahmasb and later at the time of Shah Suleiman Safavi a diwan (court) was built in the same area of Chenarestan Shah Abbasi, but today these monuments are destroyed.
The existing Palace is remotely limited to part of the works and buildings of the Zand period and does not go beyond that.
The Golestan Palace was registered on July 2, 2013, at the UNESCO World Heritage Committee’s 37th annual summit in Phnom Penh (Cambodian capital), as a human heritage of UNESCO.
