The Shams ol-Emareh (Edifice of the Sun) Palace is one of the first high-rise buildings of old Tehran, dating back to 150 years ago.

Nasser al-Din Shah Qajar, inspired in one of his foreign visits by the multi-story buildings he observed there, ordered Doostali Khan Nezam od-Dowleh (Moayer al-Mamalek) to build the palace, whose construction finished in 1867.

Shams ol-Emareh, which was well planned and adorned with various decorations such as stucco, mirror works, tile works, and murals, is one of the most beautiful historical buildings in Tehran.
