Tehran, Sadabaad Palace


Iran Tehran Palace

Tehran, Sadabaad Palace

The King really lived life kingsize. Everything room in the palace was as big as a four-room-flat in Singapore, or maybe even bigger! The palace was grandiose inside out. And we were awed!

The Saadabad Palace was immense, it wasn’t quite possible to tour round the entire place in a day and so we picked and chose a few more interesting attractions. We want to take it easy and move slow, especially when touring a palace with a 4-year-old.

Here’s the grand entrance! Even before we entered the palace, we could hear the sound of running water. How peaceful!

Cold, clean water running down from the mountain to the palace.

The Palace was beautiful, with lots of trees and water everywhere. I’m not sure if those kings actually had the time to take a walk in their palace to enjoy such scenic views, but we sure did! And we took heaps of photos too!

Sonia’s favourite activity wasn’t to take family shots with us (you can tell from the picture). She loves picking flowers! More pictures of that later, but really, I was very a little worried. What if she starts picking flowers back home in Singapore? I’ll get slapped with fines!

It was spring then, and the weather was comfortably cool! We like!

And if you wonder what was in hub’s backpack; nothing in it belonged to him. We had Sonia’s extra clothes, water bottle, thermal flask, milk canisters, porridge, hanky, and a couple bottles of Pediasure Chocolate Milk (that was a must for my fussy-eater). And I’m guessing, that weighed 10kg, no?

It was a lot of walking in the palace and I was thankful that she walked most of the time. Or at least for that few hours we were at the palace. My arms were already sore from carrying her the entire day at the snow mountain.

Her favourite activity at the palace – picking flowers! We spent a good hour there watching her picked flowers.

Flowers after flowers…

Now, I’m getting bored but she still refuses to leave…

After an hour and a half, we were still there, picking flower. If I try carrying her away from those flowers, she cries! How? It took me a LONG time to coax her out of that field. Guess where we went?

To throw flowers at the stream… This girl had sooooooooo much fun with flowers!

While visiting the Royal Car Museum, she got hungry, and so we stepped out to the park for lunch. There wasn’t any eatery on site, so if you planned to stay at the palace all day, remember to pack some sandwiches out for lunch.

Here’s Sonia having her lunch. She had porridge every single day because she was (still is) so fussy with food, I had to cook for her daily and all I had was a slow cooker. Should have brought a rice cooker with me! Faster!

She had porridge in the morning and afternoon throughout the whole trip!

After her lunch, we roamed about the palace…

After taking this picture, Sonia fell asleep. So we decided to call it a day and headed out for our very late lunch.

 

Koohpaya Restaurant

The roads were narrow and traffic conditions up the mountain were really bad. If you can drive in Iran, you can drive in any other country. Boy, it was an eye opener! Drivers there were skilful.

As soon as we reached our destination, Sonia woke up!

We walked through the buzzing road, and up the hill to the Koohpaye Restaurant.

The lamb there was divine!

So was their rice. Yes, rice.

And then we spent the rest of our evening at the Palladium Mall. Well, I need to buy some grocery to cook Sonia’s porridge!

We had an awesome day and I hope you had an awesome one too!
