Kooshke-e- Ahmad Shahi

Sorry for our few days absence on the photo blog. You know that we are in Nowruz holiday and it is a tradition to meet our relatives and friends during these days.

For the today’s post, I selected a photo from Tehran that I took at my previous trip. It shows you Ahmad Shah palace that is called “Kooshk-e- Ahmad Shah Qajar.

The palace is now a museum. Kooshk is a kind of Persian palace and we have some of them from Safavi and Qajar eras in Isfahan, Shiraz, Qazvin and also Tehran.

The columns are so tall on the top floor. Interesting proportions in this palace/museum.

Glad you had a good Nowruz holiday. Tomorrow we start our week of holidays.

Hi Sarah,
I missed a couple of posts! Sorry, I don't know how to make your blog show up in my Google Reader. Hmm. Not sure what to do about that. I was telling a friend about you yesterday and I thought, "Hey, what about Sarah?" So I came to check on you. I'll figure it out.

I hope your holiday time was wonderful and that your holiday dreams come true. You and I envision the same beautiful world.
