Tehran Times - - HERITAGE & TOURISM -

TEHRAN – The 19th-cen­tury Sa­he­bqaraniyeh Palace in north­ern Tehran will un­dergo ex­ten­sive restora­tion project af­ter some 2.5 years of clo­sure.

Her­itage ex­perts are about to com­mence a re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing mis­sion as re­lated stud­ies have been com­pleted, ISNA quoted Rah­ma­tol­lah Ra’ouf, head of the com­plex, as say­ing on Satur­day.

Speak­ing about de­te­ri­o­rat­ing sit­u­a­tion of the palace, Ra’ouf said: “In 2010, a crack ap­peared on the ceil­ing of its Hozkhaneh hall … and one of its chan­de­liers fell down in 2013. Later in 2014, some cracks started to run on Talar-e Aineh (Mir­ror Hall) of the palace.”

Beau­ti­fully dec­o­rated and fully-fur­nished in­te­rior spa­ces of the palace fea­ture loads of art works in­clud­ing pre­cious paint­ings and sculp­tures by Ira­nian and for­eign artists.

The palace stands within the Ni­avaran Cul­tural-His­tor­i­cal Com­plex, which houses 19th- and 20th-cen­tury land­mark build­ings, mu­se­ums and mon­u­ments in an area of about eleven hectares.
