Photographer's Note

Northern veiw of the gate of the Bagh-e Melli (The National Garden) built in the late years of the Qajar dynasty by the order of Reza Shah Pahlavi when he was the primier. The gates were built by Jafar-khan Kashani in 1906.
Here used to be a millitary area but when Reza Shah came to throne, he changed this place into the National Garden. A few years later, Some governmental buildings were built in the area but the name has remained up to now.

Now, Bagh e Melli is a government complex where the old building of Police office, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran, The National Museum of Iran, Malek Museum, the Irainan Research Centre for Conservation of Cultural Relics (RCCCR), and the National Museum of Post & telecommunication are located. The complex is located in central Tehran.
This gate were considered as the symbol of Tehran until the Shahyad monument were built.
