“Nice view at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We went there for Uham concert and spent a few minutes discovering different parts of the Tower and surrounding area as well.
There's a car parking in Azadi Square which is accessible from Azadi avenue and then from the inner circle of the square.
Beautiful colors are used to lighten the Tower.
Be careful if you want to visit the Tower during the day as this part of the city is crowded most of the day time.
There are concert halls, museum and other facilities (all renovated recently) in the complex, decorated with beautiful white and colorful marbles.

It's located in the azadi square. It has a unique architecture that's a combination of traditional and modern iranian architecture. There is a museum inside the tower.
