What is the history of this palace?
There is a historical construction in the middle of an elegant garden in the northern part of Tehran called Niavaran Palace. Covering an area of 9000 square meters, it comprises five buildings. Niavaran Palace was in fact the famous Qajar king’s, Naser al-Din Shah, summer resort which was later expanded by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. The main Niavaran Palace was completed in 1968, which was supposed to be a reception hall for royal guests, but changed into the royal residence later. The king and his royal family lived here until the Islamic revolution in 1979. Mohammad Shah Qajar also built a small and simple building in the same garden. Later, in 1850, Nasser-al-Din Shah Qajar ordered to build a two-story building at the garden. He named himself the landlords, “Saheb Qaran” and as a result, he named the palace “Saheb-Qaraniyeh Palace”. The last building which was built at the Niavaran Palace Complex was Ahmad Shahi Palace. During the governor of Pahlavi II, all buildings except for the Ahmad Shahi Palace were destroyed and the current Niavaran Palace was built at the northern part of the garden with a modern style to be used as the residence of the royal family of Mohammad Reza Shah. The construction of this palace was finished in 1968. The Ahmad Shahi Pavilion (or Kushk-e Ahmad-Shahi) was then used as an exhibition center.
