<font color=blue><b>TEHRAN which means *Warm Slope*, was a village in the suburb of the ancient Iranian capital of RAY. After the fall of Ray by the Monggols in 1220 AD ( why uncle Kublai Khan, you attacking this town ? ), its residents move to Tehran and the foundation for it to become a city was thus laid.</font>
