Overall, Tehran is an astonishing blend of modernity and the traditional, solid structure of a city. Tehran has been the capital of the Persian land for thousands of years, once the “city of Ray” where today it is considered south of Tehran. The same city that is composed of a homogeneous mix of ancient buildings, magnificent mosques, luxurious mansions, mosaic parks, and modern buildings, and no one gets bored. Although Tehran is not known as a historic city, it has its own interesting but different attractions that should not be missed.
History of Tehran
Tehran has a long history, and archaeologists believe that life in the area dates back to the Neolithic Age. In 2014, a human skeleton was found about 7,000 years ago in the Molavi district of Tehran; in 2015 another skeleton with stone tools was found near the same site. In some of Parsig’s writings, Ray is referred to as the birthplace of Zoroastrianism. In the conflict between Darius III and Alexander the Great, Alexander and his troops stopped for a few days in the area.
But Tehran’s transformation from a typical city into a modern capital began in the Pahlavi era. During the Pahlavi era, state affairs were concentrated in the capital and the number of government employees in the city increased rapidly. In this period, the city of Tehran, in addition to both political and commercial duties, also accepted administrative duties. In the years 1312 to 1318, the construction of large educational institutions such as the University of Tehran and modern hospitals began. The Amjadiyya Stadium, the Museum of Ancient Iran, and the National Library were also established during these years. Cinema, café, hotel and restaurant were also built in Tehran and due to the car and bus arrivals the streets were paved or asphalted and new buildings with modern western architecture changed the face of the capital.
After the 1979 revolution, Tehran became the center of population acceptance in Iran. This helped shape the metropolis of Tehran and made Tehran one of the largest metropolises in the Middle East. Population growth While contributing to the formation of Tehran’s metropolis, in addition to the inefficiencies of urban management, it added to its problems.
