Baharestan (Persian: بَهارِستان ) is the name given to the historic Iranian parliament building, inaugurated in 1906 (see: Iranian Constitutional Revolution). It was adopted from the name of the neighborhood and a small palace that adorned the place.
The Baharestan remained the location for the lower chamber of the Iranian Parliament (the Senate had moved to a new building in central Tehran) until the Iranian Revolution (1979). After the revolution, the parliament became unicameral and met at the Senate building, and in 2004 to a newly built building in Baharestan.
