In 1901 Prince Malek Mansur Mirza Shao es-Saltaneh ordered Ali-Akbar Mozayyen-al-Dawla Naghash-bashi to make a decorative iron transenna for the Tomb of Hafez. The current Mausoleum was designed by André Godard, French archeologist and architect, in the late 1930s.
Evin is a neighbourhood in the north of Tehran. The pictures shown here are of the last remaining orchards and old houses in Evin. The traditional village of Evin is located between Daneshgah Square on the north and Evin Mosque on the south. Acacia Lane is the street with the stairs. Evin Prison is also located nearby.
