Azadi Tower-Photo by Alena Vavrdova

Azadi Tower is the gateway to Iran and a world-famous Iranian monument. With an impressive 45 metres (148 ft) tall tower, the Azadi Tower is a sight to behold. Built out of marble, it was commissioned to celebrate the 2,500th year of the foundation of the state of Iran. The winning entry in an architectural competition, the tower was designed by Hossein Amanat. The design blends classical and modern Iranian architecture while using white as a colour as a nod to the White revolution. The stunning Azadi Tower has become an iconic landmark in Tehran, and visitors can view the city from the observation deck.
