In this feature, we visit Tehran's art center to have a look at the latest exhibition, a visual arts festival from the great masters of Iran. Sculptures, paintings, calligraphy and a whole lot more; a great collection to see and enjoy.

Magicians, mentalists and illusionists have been around for hundreds of years. They perform marvelous tricks and are said to be able to move faster than the human eyes. A group of mentalists in Tehran perform some tricks of the magicians’ trade for Iranians all through the country. From levitation to balancing acts to mysterious feats they will entertain you.

Like many other regions in Iran, South Khorasan province also boasts a high number of handicrafts. We toured the villages in the province and met with skilled craftsmen and got to know more about their works which includes weaving a special traditional cloth called “Jajim”, woodwork, pottery, and of course the all time favorite “Persian carpet”. 

Shahid Motahhari School is one of the historical monuments in the capital city of Tehran. It is located in Baharestan Square. The structure was built upon the order of Mirza Hasankhan Sepahsalar, the Chancellor of Nasereddin Shah during the Qajar era. In the past, it was names Sepahsalar or Naseri School, but later on it was named after Ayatullah Motahhari, an Iranian scholar, cleric and politician. Motahhari School was built based on the Persian architectural style. Plasterworks and tile works impart a pleasing sight to the complex.
