Azadi Tower

Located in Tehran, Iran, stands an amazing building. The Azadi Tower lit up a night looks outstanding.

It was built in 1971.  It was named the Shahyad Tower, meaning “Kings’ Memorial”, but was dubbed Azadi (Freedom) after the Iranian Revolution of 1979. It’s 164 feet tall, completly covered with cut marble.

Hossein Amanat, was the architect, and he won a competition for designing it. There is fountains all around the monument, and even a full museum underneath it.

This is an awesome building! Shows are held here all the time. There is a huge light show, that takes place.
