Ferdowsi & Milad Tower

Ferdowsi & Milad Tower


Two icons of past and today Iran:
Ferdowsi (940–1020 CE) was a highly revered Persian poet. Ferdowsi is one of the undisputed giants of the Persian literature. He was the author of the Shahnameh, the national epic of Iran and related societies. Ferdowsi's Shahnameh is the most popular and influential national epic in Iran and other Persian-speaking nations.
Ferdowsi has a unique place in Persian history because of the strides he made in reviving and regenerating the Persian language and cultural traditions after Arab's invasion; the fact that never happened in most countries taken over by Arabs.

Milad Tower is the tallest tower in Iran. Built in 2007, it stands 435 m (1,427 ft) high from base to tip of the antenna.[4] The head consists of a large pod with 12 floors, the roof of which is at 315 m (1,033 ft). Below this is a staircase and elevators to reach the area. Milad Tower is the seventh tallest tower in the world.
Milad Tower is a part of The Tehran International Trade and Convention Centre.
