A Clock That Did Not Work for 90 Years.
Shams-ol-Emareh is 35 meters tall with five floors. It was the tallest building in Tehran when it was built, and the first building using metal in its structure. All the pillars on the upper floors are of cast iron. Shams-ol-Emareh was the symbol of Tehran before Sar Dar Baghe Melli was built.
