Azadi Tower construction

The Azadi Tower (Persian:Borj-e Azadi meaning in English: Freedom Tower) is the symbol of Tehran, Iran, and marks the entrance to the city.

Built in 1971 in commemoration of the 2,500th anniversary of the Persian Empire, this “Gateway into Iran” was named the Shahyad Tower (meaning “Remembrance of the Shahs (Kings)”) but dubbed Azadi (Freedom) after the Iranian Revolution of 1979.

It is the symbol of the country’s revival, and intended to remind coming generations of the achievements of modern Iran under the Pahlavi Dynasty.

It is 50 metres (148 feet) tall and is completely clad in cut marble.
