With oldness more than 80 years, the white palace is the biggest palace of Sa’dabad’s complex. It’s made of 10 halls, various parts, and Arash bowman statue that shows off at the front of the entrance of the palace. but why it’s appellation is a White palace? Because of the white color of external palace’s face. Most of the walls are exquisite silk, painted window shade with oil color with epic Iran stories (mostly Shahnameh), alabaster stone and skylights, all these elements together have created a pleasant scene Also handmade valuable carpets that were made by Iranian people hands are signs of confederacy people life.145 meters carpet with a unique design is a good symbol to this subject. Another interesting part of this palace is the Iranian old tiles with oldness more than 2000 years which are placed at the first floor. Also, Napoleon Bonaparte painting is maintained on this floor. Many Painted canvas are saved at the White palace but undoubtedly the most beautiful piece of all of them is the virtue of 17th Italian artist Anieah lofaklote. Another marvelous feature of this place is a 130 years old piano. This handmade artwork belonged to Bekr, a Germany-Austrian artist that had made it for the last Russian emperor Nikolai II and gifted it to the Austrian emperor.

The next palace, which is one my favorite parts, is the Green palace. This magnificent palace got this name because of the rare green stones used on its exterior walls. Many also call this palace, the stone palace too. The unique green stones of the Green palace were mined from the Khorasan’s marble and Khamseh Zanjan’s mines. These stones are special not only because of their color but because they are made of lead that prevent them from breaking due to time or natural happenings like shrinkage and expansion. As we are speaking of the exterior parts of the Green palace, its main door opens to the view of Alborz Mountain and its columns are the combination of Iranian and uropian style making it one of a kind and for the material used to build them, they are made of Khorasan’s marble. The green palace was renovated and changed a little over time. Its former name was the Shahvand Palace that changed after Iranians big Islamic revolution.

Let’s talk a little bit more about the origin of the green palace. It took 7 years for Iranians great architectures and artist to build such a masterpiece. Containing 2 floors, the green palace was used as resident and office and its basement was a storage room. The basement also contained a magnificent dining room. Each element in that dining room from the porcelain to the table itself was brought from Europe and suited the king lifestyle perfectly. The most interesting part of the Green palace is the elegant mirror works on the main hall. Professor hosein behzad was on this project himself and due to the respect to this great man, now there exists a museum of his works and arts. Make sure to pay a visit to this museum in your Saad abad palace visit.
