Niavaran

The Niavaran branch of the National Library of Iran offers a pleasant environment for its users.
The Niavaran Public Library is nestled snugly within the Niavaran city park.

Niavaran (Persian: نياوران‎‎) is a district in the north of Tehran's foothills. Bordering leafy, uphill-winding Darband Street, it can be reached from Tajrish Square, and is close to Darabad at the far north-eastern corner of Greater Tehran.

Culture

It is home to the affluent as well as many artists, and replete with cultural riches such as Niavaran Palace Complex, Niavaran Park, and the Farhangsara (cultural centre) that includes an amphitheatre, museum, music hall, and Café Gallerie, a courtyard coffee shop with indoor exhibition space.

In recent years, the Niavaran area has become famous by groups of artists who use the traditional backdrop of the area for taking photos on their mobile phones. It has been extensively photographed by many artists using the Instagram software, which is one of the only social networking applications available in Iran.
