Tehran : Past & Present is the first volume, in English along with an abstract in Farsi, of a series of books introducing various aspects of life, art and the architecture of the capital city of Iran. Despite the fact that there is evidence of dwellings dating back to 3000 years ago in this location and the huge population it holds today which makes it top the list of the world’s metropolises, Tehran is a fairly young city compared to other cities in Iran . If Isfihan is hailed as the majestic capital city of Iran during the Safavid period, Tehran , with all its intricacies and delicacies in architecture, culture and art, was the capital city of the Qajar Dynasty and enjoys significant importance in the transition from the past to the present. An outstanding feature of this book is making use of pictures along with captions and accompanying articles portraying the historical and cultural ups and downs of the past two hundred years of this city along with an introduction of the traditions, rites, religious ceremonies, market places and bazaars, houses, temples, palaces, architectural ornamentations, and the nature and landscape encircling the cityscape, all of which mysteriously are proof of an underlying life full of passion and variety of forms in all these phenomena. The integrated harmony that can be seen beyond the facades of the architectures and sights are evidence of the solidarity of the elements comprising the culture of Iran and the spirituality of its people.
