Edifice of the Sun is the most stunning structure of the Golestan Palace.
The idea of building a tall structure came to Nasser ol Din Shah who wanted a structure from which he could have panoramic views of the city.
Designed by Moayer ol Mamalek, construction on this building began in 1865 and was completed two years later. Its architect was Ali Mohammad Kashi.
The building has two identical towers. The exterior views have multiple arches, intricate tile work and ornate windows. This building's two towers are in fact small versions of the Safavid viewing palace of Ālī Qāpū in Isfahan.
