سبز Green palace

(Shahvand palace) at the uphill end of the complex, the more classical looking, Green palace was built at the end of the Qajar era and extensively remolded by the Pahlavi. Reza Shah lived here for only a year and apparently found the bed, if not the mirror stalactites on the ceiling, a little too soft-he slept on the floor instead. It was later used as a private reception hall (upstairs) and residence (downstairs) for special guests. The design is over-the-top opulent, with wall to wall mirror in the appropriately named mirror hall and the bedroom. Be sure to take in the view from the back.








White palace

(Palace of the nation) what is now called the white palace was built between 1931 and 1937 and served as the Pahlavi summer residence. The two bronze boots outside are all that remain of a giant statue of Reza Shah-he got the chop after the revolution. Most of what you see in the 5000-sq-meter, 54-room palace from Mohammad Reza Shah's reign (1942-79) and little has changed since the revolution. The modern building is filled with a hodge-podge of extravagant furnishings, paintings, a tiger pelt and immense made-to-measure carpets. It was height of luxury in its day with discreet air-conditioning units that fold away into the walls. In the upstairs Ceremony Hall is a 143-sq-meter carpet that is said to be one of the largest ever woven in Iran. The nearby Dining Hall contains a similar carpet and it is here that Shah convinced the palace was bugged, dragged a table into the middle of the room and insisted both he and the American general he was entertaining climb on top before they spoke. Don't miss the trippy stainless-steel staircases at the back of the ground floor which spiral down to the Nation's Art Museum in the basement.
