Shams Palace, also known as kakh-e Morvarid, is a large estate designed by Taliesin Associated Architects on instructions from princess Shams Pahlavi, elder sister of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran. It was built in the early 1970s and it is located in Mehrshahr near Karaj, Iran.
The majority of the complex is currently occupied by a local Baseej chapter who are neglecting its upkeep. Small parts are open to the public as a result of pressure from the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran.
The building was recognized as a cultural value only in 2002, and registered by the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran. iran tour
