Azadi Square, 1971
|Designed by||Hossein Amanat|
The 50 m Azadi Tower is in the centre of the square.
It was called Shahyad (Persian: شهیاد; literally "Remembrance of the Shahs (Kings)") Square before the Iranian Revolution, and was the site of many of the Revolution's demonstrations leading up to 12 December 1979. The square was again the site of mass opposition during the 2009–2010 Iranian election protests.
