Sahebqaranieh Palace

(11 رای)



Sahebqaranieh is most interesting for the insight it affords into the Shah's daily life. Rooms include a basement tea house, private dental surgery and a bar decorated with Shirazi painted beams. Keep an eye out for the Shah's golden phone and gold-coloured pistols, and for photos displayed in the Ambassadors Waiting Room; the mixed bunch sees Mao Zedong share space with Pope Paul VI, while Hitler, Queen Elizabeth II, Richard Nixon, Kemal Ataturk and Dwight Eisenhower (who was a guest at the Shah’s last wedding), stare out from the past nearby.
