The Golestan Palace (Persian: کاخ گلستان‎, Kākh-e Golestān) is the former royal Qajar complex in Iran's capital city, Tehran.

One of the oldest historic monuments in the city of Tehran, and of world heritage status,[1] the Golestan Palace belongs to a group of royal buildings that were once enclosed within the mud-thatched walls of Tehran's arg ("citadel"). It consists of gardens, royal buildings, and collections of Iranian crafts and European presents from the 18th and 19th centuries.[1]
