In Golestan Palace, you can drown yourself in the joy of visiting the Marble Throne (Takht-e-marmar), the Pool Room (Hoz Khane), the Mirror hall (Talar-e-Ayeneh), the Edifice of the Sun (Shams-Ol-Emare), the Wind Tower Building (Emarat-e-Badgir), and The Diamonds Hall (Talar-e-Almas).

When you arrive at one of the streets leading to the Tehran market, you will see a large crowd of people from all walks of life, each of whom seeking to buy or take a walk in the Grand Bazaar. Tehran Bazaar is very significant in terms of economy and trade, and a myriad of wholesalers, retailers, warehouses, and workshops are to be found on every nook and cranny. In this market, most manufacturing factories have established dealerships for direct communication with major retailers and wholesalers, so this place serves as the main distribution center for domestic and even foreign goods. The architecture is stunningly beautiful, and it is surrounded by an area which is almost 6000 years old. The bazaar is among the most popular Tehran tourist attractions.
Saad Abad Complex, which is now a museum, was built by the Pahlavis.
