  • More Info

    The Karaj Pearl Palace complex (Shams Palace) was used until recently as a museum used by the martyr Fahmida recreational camps complex. This work was listed in the National Register of Persian Literature in the year 1382. In the year 86, the Mostazafan and Veterans Foundation sold and surrendered to the municipality of Karaj in an illegal operation in one of the official documents. But several months after the coming of the eleventh government and on May 1, 1993, the decree was handed over to the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Bureau of the Alborz Province, with the order of the General and Revolutionary Prosecutor of Karaj.
    By re-appropriating the cultural heritage of 30 acres from the area of this collection, which includes the main palace, the cultural authorities of the province of Alborz, announced plans to rebuild this work, which has been largely destroyed during its years of neglect. The promise of the public visit of this unique building, after the emergency reconstruction, has been given by the officials of the Cultural Heritage Organization.
