The only budget friendly palaces of this place are the main palace, the gallery and the gifts museum. Others are brilliant palaces but not much to see relative to price you are paying. Beautiful garden and excellent architecture.

Golestan palace is indeed a place to visit when you are in Tehran. A beautiful garden surrounded by old buildings from Gajar kingdom. It is located in the heart of Tehran and very close to Bazar.

If you are going to visit Qajar dynasty palaces, so it's time to go to Golestan palace. This site is combination of different palaces and monuments. The mirrors of main palace is enistimable. And Marble also. The green court is amazing.
