Photographer's Note

A beautiful aerial view of central Tehran. A High Gate of early 20th century, is visible in the context of attractive snow caped Alborz mountain range of northern Tehran. The Gate is locally called Bagh-e Melli.
Bagh-e Melli (The National Garden) is a compound where several buildings including Malek National Museum, Tehran University of Art and the Communication Museum (Post and Telecommunication) are located.
The compound became the first modern public park of Iran for a short period of time and then important museums has been built on it.
The gates of the compound were built by Jafar-khan Kashani in 1906.
