Though the history of Tehran stretches back more than 2,300 years, the Shahyad Tower has managed to become the symbol of Iran's capitol city in just a few decades. The arch rises from Azadi Square mirroring the Elburz (Alborz) mountain range just north of the city. Though not as wondrous as the snowy peaks of Mount Damavand, it is a 148 foot tall masterpiece of cut marble that marks the entrance to this historic city.

  This is a unique piece of archietecture. I would advise anyone who has a chance to see it, to do so before it all collapses.
