Elahiyeh neighborhood is considered to be one of the “most fashionable areas” in all of Tehran. This neighborhood is known for its extensive gardens and houses that have striking architectural elements.

Both Shariati Street and Valiasr Street are easily accessible from here.

History of Elahiyeh Neighborhood

Elahiyeh was formerly a part of the Zargandeh area. Elahiyeh has a great climate owing to its location in Shemiranat, which is south of the Tajrish area. It was close to the Darband River and Tajrish Valley. Many lush gardens have sprouted up in Elahiyeh as a result of this adequate access to water supplies. Elahiyeh was formerly known as “Khorazin,” and Mohtaram al-Dawlah, Amin al-Dawlah’s wife, owned this territory. Mirza Jafar Hakim Elahi made three separate purchases of six properties in Khorazin in 1869. This region is called Elahiyeh because Mirza Jafar Hakim Elahi purchases these properties from the Tajrishi heirs of Mirza Hossein and Mulla Mohammad Ali.

Features That Separate Elahiyeh Neighborhood From Others

Fereshteh Street; The Street of Angel

It is home to the most expensive real estate in all of Tehran, with an average price of $1,442 per square meter, making it similar in price to Beverly Hills, California. Additionally, the clubhouses of the embassies of Russia, Turkey, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Belgium, Iceland, Cuba, and Finland are all located here. Fereshteh Street, which has traditionally been the most costly street in Tehran, is the section of the neighborhood that is known for having the highest amenities.

The most recent structures and a large number of trendy establishments, such as high-end malls and sophisticated coffee shops, can be found in this neighborhood. Fereshteh used to be one of the quietest, most peaceful, and greenest parts of northern Tehran, with vast gardens; however, it has seen significant development and real estate investment.


Now, Fereshteh is one of the most chaotic yet greenest parts of northern Tehran. During the height of this boom, many of the enormous gardens and big homes in this neighborhood were demolished to make way for the trendiest high rises, which resulted in a significant increase in the population of this region. Because of this, the tight lanes around this region have become problematic, and as a result, the surrounding traffic often becomes gridlocked in the evenings.

Dr Hesabi Street-Fereshteh

Dr. Hesabi Museum

One of Tehran’s museums, the Dr. Hesabi Museum, was constructed in 1992 at the site of the late renowned Iranian scientist Dr. Hesabi’s home. It is on Maqsoodbeyk Street, formerly known as Hesabi Crossroads in the Elahiyeh neighborhood that Mahmoud Hesabi’s personal items, scientific and educational records, medals, certificates, and historical photographs are on display. The museum is housed in a building that was constructed in 1930 and is on the third floor. This location exhibits Dr. Hesabi’s manner of living in addition to the building itself, which is historic and worth visiting, and the things that are on display at the museum.

Dr Mahmoud Hesabi Museum

You may view the modifications Dr. Hesabi made to his home to make things simpler for his vision-handicapped wife or his creative reuse of broken objects at this museum. Iraj Hesabi, Mahmoud Hesabi’s son, is in charge of overseeing the operation of this museum. The Mahmoud Hesabi Museum is divided into two areas that are now in process: the cultural portion, which is in charge of publishing Mahmoud Hesabi’s writings, and the scientific section, which is concerned with the life and scientific work of Dr. Hesabi. The museum’s administration said in 2008 that it would host 200 to 300 university projects in addition to 100 high school ones.
