Inside the Palace – Photo Persiennes

Last week we were in Tehran and we’ve been visiting the last residence of Shah of Iran and Empress Farah Diba Pahlavi: Kajhe Niavaran. Here are some pictures we took for you from the inside, the garden and from the private art collection of Empress Farah. When you’re visiting the Palace, a very strange feeling gets into you: you feel like all the Royal family just left yesterday…
