Darolfonoon, Iran’s First Education Center

TEHRAN (FNA)- Mirza Taghi Khan Farahani, born in 1852, also known as Amir Kabir advised the Naser al-Din Shah Qajar (Shah of Persia at the time) into building the first university of Persia and so Darolfonoon was built. Designed by Abbas Mirza who had studied the architecture of forts and military constructions back in Britain, the Darolfonoon was ready for inauguration by 1851. Darolfonoon continued working for years until it became part of the newly established University of Tehran. Today the sight is under renovations to become the treasury and documentation centre of the ministry of Education, yet visits are allowed through the secondary entrance. [PHOTOS]
