That is amazing density indeed! Wish there was a pinch more diversity in the buildings. Do many of these have courtyards?

I also love Tehran's setting with the mountains all around ...

Why do you wish there was a pinch more diversity?

Persia had a long history of wonderful innovation and creativity in art and architecture. A diversity in the buildings of modern Iran would reinforce this, instead of suppress it. Perhaps it actually is more architecturally diverse ... I was really only looking at that one picture.

One thing for sure ... would love to see a few more courtyards. One can have density yet still have small spaces for people to gather and enjoy a pinch of nature. Roof-top green spaces could be something appropriate here also. Glad to see that some of the spaces around the major roads do have green.

As for the courtyards many apartments have yards in some areas there is no space for yards but instead they do have small neighbourhood parks, where they can hang out. Tehran has so many huge and nice parks too.

Actually Tehran is not such a historic city it's only about 200 years old therefore it's more modern than historic but other cities in Iran have numerous historic buildings and sites, such az Isfahan, Yazd, Shiraz.

You are very welcome. I think they are working very hard on the observation deck at the moment.

I didn't know that the winter in Tehran can be snowy, is it freqent?

The tower itself looks good, especially its "persian features". But it looks like it stands in the middle of nowhere... What is the visitor attendance there?

Yes, actually the snow in Tehran is frequent in winter. You can see many pix of snowy days in Tehran in my signature. Also there are amazing ski resorts around the city.

Great pics, as usual! I like the highways very much!

And look, the political discussion is blown away immediately.
