Shah's last palace, secluded refuge in Iran, is now a museum

The Niavaran Palace, a complex of mansions on a 27-acre plot, now welcomes the public to marvel at the luxuries the Shah enjoyed as Iran’s monarch for nearly four decades. As Iran reflects on Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi’s departure from the country 40 years ago on Wednesday, the palace has taken on even more meaning for those visiting and working there.
