Old Parliament

The former palace of Moshir od-Dowleh, a nobleman at Nasser ad-Din Shah's court, had for many years housed Iran's Majlis or Parliament (Baharestan Square). It is a massive stone building with ornate iron gates leading into a big garden, a little Second Empire in manner but still characteristically Persian in spirit. It was in fact part of the great mansion Moshir od-Dowleh built for himself.
The modern Iranian Islamic Consultative
Assembly holds its sessions in the previous Senate building, Imam Khomeini street.
