Marzanabad (Persian: مرزن آباد‎, also Romanized as Marzanābād; also known as Marzūnābād and Murzānābād)[1] is a city in Kelardasht District, in Chalus County, Mazandaran Province, Iran. At the 2006 census, its population was 5,078, in 1,335 families.[2]

Marzanabad is the closest green city of Mazandaran province to Tehran while passing through the beautiful road of Tehran-Chalus. Note that Tehran-Chalus road is one of three major roads that connect Tehran to Mazandaran province and it is the shortest path towards Caspian Sea from Tehran.

Marzanabad is located on a T-junction of the roads towards Tehran, Chalus and Kelardasht. It is about 25 km away from both Chalous and Kelardasht while it is about 170 km away from Tehran via Tehran-Chalus road. It worths to mention that after completing Tehran-Chalous highway first phase (Tehran-Shahrestanak phase), the distance will be reduced to 110 km. Due to the strategic location of the city, it attracts thousands of tourists each year from almost all parts of Iran, but especially from Tehran.
