Tugrul Tower ( برج طغرل تهران ) is a magnificent historic monument remained from Seljuk empire ( around 12th century ) . This tower is a memorial monument for the great Seljuk king – Tugrul Beik (first Seljuk king) who died in Rey city. Rey was a very important city in those times but now is an area belonging to Great Tehran. The tower height is 20 meter now, but it is obvious that it had a dome which destroyed due to an earthquake. Amazing thing to know is that the whole structure is made of stone powder & egg. There are twenty four tracks on the tower wall which made the building more stable during the times . Also these tracks had another function to be used as a solar calendar .
In Qajar Era ( 150 years ago ) , Naser AlDin – forth king of Qajar dynasty ordered to renovate the Tower . Tugrul tower is located in south east part of Tehran . Abdol Azim Holy shrine is another attraction near to Tugrul tower . in our city tour program we visit both of them along with a bas relief remained from Qajar time.
we recommend you to see our Tehran city tour programs if you like to pay a visit as going there by public transportation is time consuming . Tehran is now a very large scale city & rey city is located just in the south part of it . using the public transportation may take two hours of your time to reach these attractions .
