History of Tehran

Tehran, is the capital and largest city of Iran, and the administrative center of Tehran Province. Tehran is a sprawling city at the foot of the Tochal mountain range with an immense network of highways unparalleled in Western Asia. The city is famous for its numerous resorts on the Alborz slopes, large museums, art centers, and palace complexes.

Tehran History Briefly    
The tourist who arrives for the first time in Tehran hoping to catch a glimpse of the splendor of ancient Persia will quickly be disappointed: Tehran has been a capital for only two centuries and has undergone constant recontruction during that time. As a result, the only traces of the long and tumultuous history of the country are hidden behind the walls of the museums. The modern city is a huge, polluted agglomeration, hot and dusty in summer and beset with seemingly insurmountable traffic problems. It has brought together nearly 20 per cent of the entire population of Iran and has expanded chaotically and too fast.

It can be generally described as mild in the spring and autumn, hot and dry in the summer, and cold in the winter.

 

 

City Development of Tehran

Up through the 1870s, Tehran consisted of the walled “arg” (royal citadel), the roofed bazaar, and “sharestan” (where the masses resided in three main neighborhoods of “Udlajan”, “Chaleh Meydan”, and “Sangelaj”). The first development plan of Tehran in 1855 emphasized the traditional spatial structure. Architecture, however, found an eclectic expression to reflect the new lifestyle.
