The municipality building in Rasht is a beautiful white mansion in the vicinity of Sabzeh Meydan square which is considered a symbol of Rasht city.
The municipality palace near the clock tower and the music building is among the most popular attractions in Rasht. It was in 1954 that, following the adoption of the Baladiya Act, construction work on the Baladieh (municipality) began.
Three years later, with the coronation of Pahlavi I in the capital, the Palace of the Municipality was established and the new Baladieh of Rasht was moved to the mansion. After decades, this place is still considered the central municipality of Rasht.
The different and modern architecture was designed when the city was extremely Influenced by the presence of the Russians in Gilan and the city of St. Petersburg was considered as a construction pattern of this building, the square, and the surrounding complex.
Three years after the building was built, the clock tower was built over the building in 1930, when the building was in the army’s possession. The 24-meter-high tower was used to monitor the city.
In addition, possible fires can be easily controlled from the top of the tower. What is left for people today is a tower that shims every hour as many times as the hour and every 30 minutes one time. For example, it chimes 5 times at 5:00 o’clock. It has been 93 years since the municipality of Rasht has been standing and tourists visit this square to feed the pigeons, take pictures and visit this historic mansion.
Iran Hotel and post museum are also considered as a part of Rasht municipality complex. In the past, the musical group of Rasht Municipality played live music every morning. This event took place in a special place that later became known as the Music Building.
