کاخ عشرت آباد ، قصر عشرت آباد
Eshratabad Palace was built in a garden during
Naseroddin Shah's reign outside the
Darvazeh Shemiran city-Gate. The building has a nice roof called Kolah-Farangi (European chapeau) which was a common architectural style of
Qajar palaces. Built in 4 floors, the 3d floor of the Eshratabad Palace has a mirror hall called
Shah-Neshin (residence of the king) to quench vanity of the Qajar court. The last floor must have had a nice view at the time.
Unfortunately, Eshratabad Palace is currently inside a military garrison and public access is not possible.
