Shams Palace (Persian: کاخ شمس; Romanized as kakh-e Shams/ Kāx-e Šams, also known as Pearl Palace Persian: کاخ مروارید; kakh-e Morvarid/ Kāx-e Morvārid ) is a large estate designed by Taliesin Associated Architects on instructions from princess Shams Pahlavi, elder sister of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran. It was built in the early 1970s and it is located in Mehrshahr near Karaj, Iran.
The majority of the complex is currently occupied by a local Baseej unit who are neglecting its upkeep. Small parts are open to the public as a result of pressure from the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran.
