Imam Hossein Square, or Meydan-e-Emam-Hoseyn, is a square in eastern central Tehran, Iran.



The Tehran trolleybus system terminated at Meydan-e-Emam-Hoseyn (Imam Hossein Square) upon its opening in the early 1990s[1] and as of 2005 all five routes of the system (routes 1–5) were still doing so.[2] However, routes 1 and 2 were discontinued sometime between 2005 and 2010, and the remaining routes serving Imam Hossein Square were cut back by about 1 km to Meydan-e-Shohada at an unknown date between 2011 and 2013.[1]
