One-day tour to remember the old house in Tehran beside all the beauties of the Iran art

If you have a chance to visit Tehran, don’t miss Moghadam House. This house is most valuable house in the world. The house, presently known as Moghaam museum, was one of the luxurious houses of the Qajar period and has two sections called Birouni ( public wing ) and Andarouni ( private wing ).

Moghadam House

The museum complex consists of the house itself and a beautiful gardens, safely hidden from street noise behind thick walls. Decoration of the house is typical for that period style: colorful tiles, columns and arches create a unique authentic atmosphere. Peaceful garden is full of blooming trees, flowers and bushes, decorated with turquoise fountains and sculptures. One of the rooms of the house is decorated with precious and semi-precious stones and corals. Tourists can visit exposition of Moghadam Museum too. The exhibition contains paintings, mosaics, sculptures and other items that so interesting for you.

   After that, your next place is Sepahsalar Mosque and Seminary. Just south the Iranian Majles ( parliament ), this Islamic college is arguable the most noteworthy example of Persian architecture of the Qajar period. The distance from Moghadam Museum to Sepahsalar Mosque is just 4km.

Sepahsalar Mosque and Seminary

Sepahsalar Mosque and Seminary were the first and the greatest mosque and higher education school in Tehran whose design is a combination of Iranian architecture and the architecture used in Istanbul mosques. The other aspect that magnifies the significance of this mosque is its library. There is now a treasury of more than 4200 manuscripts by compilers and about 10 thousand lithographic books in the library.

Another museum I strongly recommend is Iran Carpet Museum. This museum exhibits a variety of persian carpets from all over Iran, dating from the 16th century to the present. Persian carpet is proud of Iranians so its good for you to know more about it.

Around of this museum, because its too close to Laleh Park, you can find some coffee shops, so now its time to rest and review all you see it today and have a delicious brunch.

If you want to stay in a hotel in Tehran you can stay at Ferdowsi Hotel which is located in heart of the city.It is located at the cultural center of Tehran near museums of archaeology. It is quite close to the central park, jewelers, Abgineh, Ancient Museums and the national library. So, if you choose this hotel you will have an amazing time to discover these ancient places too.
