Photos from northern Iran
عکس ها از ایران


The north of Iran is very different from the rest of the country : the landscape is more mountainous, in some parts very green, and it is home to non-persian ethnic groups such as the Azeri in the west around Tabriz and the Turkmen in the area near Gonbad. Tehran may not be the most beautiful city in Iran, but it does have a number of interesting sights such as the Palaces of Niyavaran and Golestan and the nearby mausoleum of Imamzadeh Shah-e Abdal-Azim in Rey. A little further south is the beautiful town of Kashan.
