(Wikipedia) - Evin This article is about the district in Tehran. For other uses, see Evin (disambiguation).Evin House of Detention

Evin is a neighbourhood in the north of Tehran.

The district consists of an old section, filled with orchards and gardens of old houses, and a new section, with towering high rises and gleaming skyscrapers.

It is adjacent to Shahid Beheshti University campus and is notorious for the nearby Evin Prison, a detention center famous for atrocities committed against political prisoners, both in pre-1979 period and in the post-revolutionary period.

It is minutes away from the popular and beautiful Darakeh hiking trail. Hiking is a national pastime in Iran, and this trail thus brings many tourists to the area.
