"Museum of The Treasury of National Iranian Jewels" Iran Favorite Tip by joks

Iran General: 97 reviews and 104 photos

Favorite thing: This would be the richest place I have ever set foot in! This one vault located underneath the Bank of Iran holds more precious jewels you would have ever ever seen in your life.

Diamonds and gemstones the size of an egg! Wars have been fought over these gems.The diamond of Darya-e Noor (Sea of Light) is one of the few largest diamonds in the world.

Of course the security is tight meaning no bags allowed taken into the vault at all....thus no pictures....you have to come to gape and gawk at these riches..the treasures of the Safavid and Sassanid kings.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
