Darabad (Persian: دارآباد‎) is a quarter in north-eastern Tehran, the capital city of Iran.

Darabad is a former village and a summit on the slopes of the Alborz mountain range to the northeast of Tehran, which has become part of the Greater Tehran area as a result of rapid expansion of the Tehran Metropolis. Many people use Darabad as the starting point for hiking the southern slopes of Alborz, especially in the summer.

Darabad today is home to Iran's most famous museums for natural history, the Nature and Wildlife Museum of Iran.[1] It is also the location of the Mahak hospital for children with cancer.
