Golestan Palace

Golestan Palace

The Golestan Palace has a monumental entrance and has several salons now used as a museum, such as the hall of mirrors, the hall of diamonds and the ivory room. In the throne room, called Talar-e Salam, is the famous Throne of the Peacock which, in 1739, was brought from India by Nader Shah as spoils of war. This throne has seven pedestals adorned with jewels and two steps; on the back emerges the image of a dragon; around its walls there are finely worked decorative inscriptions.
