Zhiwaar Tour has organized a short trip to an old street in south Tehran built in 1867.
Molavi Street was paved in the reign of Nasser al-Din Shah of the Qajar dynasty who gave Tehran a new identity.
Starting from the southern fringes of Tehran, the former ruler ordered builders to go farther south for one thousand feet and dig a moat which was later replaced by Shush Street. After the moat was built, a street ran along its northern flank, which was initially known as ‘Esmail Bazzaz’ and then named Molavi. 
The trip starts at 9:30 am from Khayyam Metro Station. The only remaining gate of old Tehran is included in the trip.
