Sardar Baghe Melli (The National Garden Gate)
Bagh-e Melli (The National Garden) is a government compound the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Iran, the National Museum of Iran, Malek National Museum, and the Future National Museum of Post are located. It is located in central Tehran and it was built by Jafar-khan Kashani in 1906. This imposing brick gateway, decorated with high Haft Rangi( seven-Color) tiles, was built in 1922 by command of Reza Khan when he was minister of War.It faces what it used to be the Ministry of War, an old Qajar building a few hundred yards to the north; the space between was for many years, a big military parade ground, Maidan-e-Mashq, but has now been built over. On the right, through the gateway, are the large police headquarters, built in neo-Achaemenian style during Reza Shah痴 reign; on the left a museum completed in 1967, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
