Masoudieh Palace


Masoudieh Palace; Home to First Iranian Library, Museum

Masoudieh Palace (Masoudieh Mansion Complex) is located on Jomhouri Street (Jomhouri Street), next to Baharestan Square, south of Tehran. This lovely building and garden, built-in 1879 for the son of Nasser al-Din Shah, Massoud Mirza, who was also the governor of Isfahan (Isfahan), is being revived as his residence in Tehran.

The palace has been the epitome of Tehran’s modern history since Mohammad-Ali Shah’s coach was bombed in front of the building and provided him with an excuse to deploy artillery and shelling the parliament.

The palace was later built because it was one of the main gathering places for constitutional revolutionaries. This building consists of internal and external spaces (the private and public area) and like other Persian gardens has its own unique features.

That includes the fact that it has been home to many cultural buildings, such as the first Iranian national museum and library. After the owner’s death, his children used the building for various purposes. In 1926, it was home to the first official library which later expanded to the National Library.

A few years later, another hall of the palace became the first museum in Iran. A collection of antiquities was later transferred to the newly established National Museum, but some are still in Masoudieh Palace. In 1967, the palace became a home for the Ministry of Education.

In 1977 and after renovation works, the complex became a beautiful garden with shops and cafes. This beautiful palace is located in the middle of 50,000 square meters. In addition to the main palace, there is also a restaurant, spring house, Seyed Javadi Mansion, Moshir al-Molk Mansion, and entrance hall.

Sima hanım çok cömert ve çok hızlı aksiyon alan bir hanımefendi. Bir acenteden beklenen her türlü özveriyi bize gösterdi. Çok memnun kaldık. Beş yıldızlı bir hizmet aldık. Gözü kapalı tüm gruplara şiddetle tavsiye ederim.
