About Zafaraniyeh Neighborhood

The wealthy and prestigious Zafaraniyeh neighborhood may be found in the northern part of Tehran, Iran. The city got its name, Zafaraniyeh, from the fact that, in ancient times, it was home to a large number of people involved in the trading of saffron (Zaferan in Farsi). The Sa’dabad Palace Museum may be found at the very end of this street, which also has a cultural house at its terminus. More than 180 hectares of natural woodland, streets, qanats, galleries, and museums are all included in the complex.

History of Zafaraniyeh Neighborhood

In the shadow of Tochal peak, next to the Darband river, is where you’ll find the Zafaraniyeh neighborhood. Because of this, it can be argued that Zafaraniyeh’s history is ancient and must have existed alongside the histories of Shemiranat and the Tajik area. But there’s a different explanation behind how Zafaraniyeh came to be an autonomous community today.

Asad Abad was a community that was formerly present in the Zafaraniyeh region and is still there today. It was situated in the valleys of the rivers Darband and Farahzad. Asad Abad, which was split into Upper and Lower Asad Abad, was a small settlement on the slopes of the Tochal peak. At the time, the majority of the Zafaraniyeh lands were agricultural areas with a lot of wheat fields and gardens.

Tochal Telecabin

Zand Karimi Garden, Khanum Marwan Garden, Haji Kolahi Garden, and Khayami Garden were a few of the extensive gardens of that period. The only remaining remnant of these gardens is Khayami Garden, and most of them have been transformed into homes and streets. The majority of the Zafaranieh holdings, which at the time extended to the area of Bagh-e Ferdows, were owned by Moayed Al-Mamalek.

Several beliefs surround the name of Zafaraniyeh. According to some, while Sa’ad Abad Palace was being built and painted saffron-like, people dubbed the region Saffron or Zafaranieh to name the site. Later, the name Zafaranieh was retained for this area. Even if this story is untrue, it should be acknowledged that Zafaraniyeh’s settlement was directly impacted by Sa’ad Abad Palace’s building. Zafaraniyeh only began to expand and change when Sa’ad Abad Palace was built.

Facilities, Amenities, and Infrastructure

Zafaraniyeh continued to be an agriculturally-based community similar to Asad Abad until the end of the Qajar dynasty. The original inhabitants of Zafaraniyeh were immigrants who came from the cities of Estarabad and Naein in Gorgan and Isfahan, respectively. Following the entrance of these clans, who established Tehran’s first power department, Zafaraniyeh began to expand and prosper. The first power plant in Zafaraniyeh was the Bammad Electricity Power Station.
