It was built with the initiative of Farah Pahlavi under the rule of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran. It is one of the cultural points of Tehran. The best performance will be held there.
At the end, if you are interested in religious place, I am recommended to visit Sepahsalar Mosque. It is the largest famous historic mosque in Tehran.
