Perhaps there have been so many magnificent sights in Iranian cities, including the Grand Bazaar in Tabriz itself, the municipality building feels a bit of a let-down. Still, it has an interesting small museum, and a carpet hall displaying large carpets woven according to the Tabriz design.

Worth a quick look, this building is a bit out of place in Tabriz. The architecture is European which provides a nice contrast to everything else in Tabriz.

Certainly an interesting place to see if you're a historian, architecture enthusiast or merely fascinated by antiques and old curiosities. The carpet room is particularly nice to see and there were several exhibitions while I was there, one of them featuring old and rare cameras. The staff in charge were lovely and very eager to show me around. Was planning... More
