Tabriz's El-Golu: A Large Park with A Qajar Palace

Built in Karakoyunlu period in 1485, the small palace in the heart of the lake was used as a royal summer palace in the Qajar dynasty. During the 2nd Pahlavi era the palace was reconstructed and the sidewalks around the lake were connected to the island by a new pass-way.

The water in the lake was originally used to irrigate the lands in the area, but then was used as a swimming pool by several royal families through decades.

In South of the lake there is a hill covered by trees. Two beautiful stairways connect the sidewalks to the top of the hill. At the top of the hill there is a building with modern architecture .There is also a small Luna park next to the park. The green tree-covered hill the lake has added to its beauty.

This place has now become one of the most beautiful promenades of Tabriz and its building has turned into a restaurant.
