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.

It is probably the most important monument of Tabriz city. Main Iranian city had a town hall and Tabriz wan't an exception. however many of them have lost their main function and serve as an attraction for tourists.

The building was built by Germans while their stay in Iran and it is shaped like an Eagle watching from the plane. It has got a clock tower and the square in which the building is located even is called Clock Square. There is a museum in the basement of the building which is no big deal but the building... More

Its outside architectural view is very nice, but it is still used as Municipality and better just to walk beside it.
