Gateways of Qazvin
There are two more Qajar constructions in Qazvin, both monumental gateways. The first, the Darb-e Kushk or Darvazeh Kushk, in the north of town on Hafez Avenue, was built in 1917. It is richly decorated in blue, yellow, and white tilework. Above the central arch is the old emblem of Iran, the lion and the sun (the crowns of the lion have now been removed). The second gateway, known as the Gateway to Tehran or Darvazeh Tehran, can be seen at the eastern exit of town, on the road to Tehran. It was restored in the 1960s.
