The Precedent of life in Tehran dates back to 5000 BC. In January 2014, a human skeleton was discovered in Tehran’s Maulvi region about 7,000 years ago. Previously, it was believed that the history of life in the present-day Tehran region dates back to the discoveries of Gheitariyah, which belonged to 3,000 years ago.

For the first time  Tehran became the capital of Iran by Tribe Qajar. The image of Fath Ali Shah’s inscription on the rocky hill of Cheshmeh Ali, north of Rey  Zone 20 of Tehran Yaghut Hamawy, a Greek historian, arabic, in Mo’jam al-Baladan, defined the term of Tehran and described the situation in the 6th and 7th centuries of the lunar year, as follows: Tehran, in the fraction of peace and tranquility(N), and in the end, is verbally Ajami and they say “Tehran” because they do not have a tongue (Ta) in their language. This village is one of the villages of the city of Rey and is between the two stone distances.

A truthful man told Rey that this village is a large village whose foundations were founded in the underground, and nobody would go there except by the will of the people, and in most cases they would disobey the ruler of the time. He does not have a choice but tolerance with them. There are twelve neighborhoods that dispute each other with the other, and people in the neighborhood will not come to another neighborhood. It is an abundance of gardens and groves, which is like a network of buildings and is considered to be invasive.

He said the people are not cultivating them with cows despite being protected, and they do this with Bill, because they are abundant enemies and they are afraid that the cows will be plundered.

Tehran in the past was from the villages of Rey and Rey located at the intersection of Qom, Khorasan, Mazandaran, Qazvin, Gilan and Saveh axis due to the important political, commercial, administrative and religious center of the past, and claimants have always been this strategic center Invasion and attack. The village of Tehran, thanks to the abyss and underground caverns, and the abundant natural conditions and difficulty of penetrating them, is a good refuge for the officials and other people who may have been prosecuted.

On the other hand, large convoys that crossed the axes were beneficial and often attacked and abducted by indigenous people. The village of Tehran was in fact a hijacker and a hijacker of stolen goods, which continued until the Shah Tahmasb Safavid, who chose Qazvin as its capital. Tehran stood up against the attack of the Afghans (Pashtuns), so they seized the city after the capture of Tehran and destroyed its gardens and vineyards. At the time of Nader Shah, Tehran was re-named and found in the city where Nadir Shah summoned the great Shiite and Sunni leaders and offered them the Islamic alliance and the resolution of the differences.

Until the discovery of Gheitariye civilization and the discovery of works on the Abbas Abad hills, it was believed that the historical background of the city is limited to the works found near the town of Rey, but archaeological discoveries in the Abbas Abad hills, the fifth floor of the Pasdaran Avenue And lessons show that all the villages in the historic district of Qasran have sparkled a period of radical establishment of the ancient tribes and cultural creativity. In Ibn Balkhi, which dates from 500 to 510 AH, Ibn Balkhi has been named after Tehran because of its popular pomegranates. Although archaeological excavations in the 1321 solar archetypes in the village of Shemiran have not been mentioned in ancient written works of pre-Islamic Tehran, there are civilized people living in this area in the second millennium BC.

Tehran was originally a relatively large village that was located between the great and famous city of that time, Rey and the foothills of Alborz. It was first mentioned in the biography of Abu Abdullah Hafez Tehrani (born 184). After the Mongol invasion and destruction of the city, Tehran has grown more and more, with a number of displaced people displaced by Ray and its area reached 106 hectares during this period. This area during the Safavid dynasty was due to the fact that the tomb of Sayyid Hamza, the hierarch of the Safavid dynasty, was located near the prince of Abdul Azim, and Tehran had well-kept orchards.

For the first time, the first Safavid Shah Tahmasb was in 916. During the passage of Tehran, the garden and the park were abundantly liked by the city, and ordered it to kill Barrow and Gandhi. It had 114 towers with a number of Qur’anic sura and four gates to the four sides of the world, from the north to the Battle of the House and Sepah Street, to the south to Mowlavi Street, to the east to Rey and to the west to the Islamic Unity Street Shapur) was limited to today, the area of ​​Tehran during this period reached 440 hectares.

During the period of Shah Abbas I (966-1007), a palace, palaces and caravansaries were built. In the northern part of the tower and the barracks of Shah Tahmasbi, Chaharbagh and Chenarestani, later they were wall-mounted, in the form of a palace (Golestan Palace) and Rule ruled. Karim Khan, in his campaigns against Qajar Mohammad Hassan Khan in 1172, elected Tehran as the center of his career and after winning the war in the old court of Tehran, which was built during the reign of King Solomon, he gave the general rule and named the ruler of al-Raya, Took hold

  • The name of Tehran is different in its origins.


  1. Tehran, a warm range in front of Shemaran or Shemiran, means a cold slope.

“Teh” means warm . Such as Tehran . But  “Shem, Sem and Zem” means cold. Like: Shemran, Semirom and winter or earth.

These prefixes are not applicable today. Many of the ancient prefixes and suffixes of the ancient Persian have been forgotten today, such as (a) in Imdad and Anoushirvan.

The word (s) in (Shemiran) is like the letter (s) in the valve (dar+ che) means in small. The Dariche, for the sake of simplicity, is turned into a hatch; Shemiran is also.

Zem or Zem means cold. In Kurdish Fili (Fahlavi), the term “Zoghom”, which is the old root of “Zham”, is still used. Example:

  • Amro,Fera zoghoms. This means is very cool today.

Because they were under the ice of the Aryan Aryans, they said “Earth” under their feet. Winter is also cold weather.

Zemherir, who came to the Qur’an and some Quran scholars are confused with the root of this word, have an ancient Persian origins, not Arabic. “Zem + Herir” means “cold”.

Semirom Isfahan is also cooler than other places in Isfahan and we see that it started with the prefix “Sem”.

Tehran is a warm range in front of Shemaran, which is a cold zone. In ancient Persian, the prefixes “Tet, Qhhh and Ah” for hot places and prefixes “Shem, Sem, Zem” for cold places. Like the words Zemherir: cold / winter: cold weather / land: because it was closed under the Aryan people, it was called the earth.

  • The city of Semirom is also cold. Jahrom and Ghahavand too.


  1. Some of others have changed Tehran, “Tehram” means the place of tropical, in contrast to Shamiran or Shemiran, which is cold.
  2. Some believe that the whole plain, which is today called Tehran, looks good among the surrounding mountains, and therefore it is called the “Tahe-e- Ran”.
  3. Some people consider Tehran as a “foothills” because in the past, when attacking thieves and enemies, people took shelter at the end of their homes (underground). (Jawaher Kalam, Abdo

AL–‘ Aziz, History of Tehran, page 24)

  1. Mehr-e-AL’Zaman Novban, the author of the opinion on the roots of the names of cities and villages, says: Some have said that they lived in the distant dark circle of the Taheri Khorasan family here. Therefore, the city was called “Taheran.” (Propagation of cities and villages of Iran, page 49) The followers of this theory say that Taheran later became “Tehran”.
  2. Hossein Kariman writes in Ghasran: Tehran is originally from Gehran, meaning “warm place” (Geh: warm + Ran: place) against Shemiran, which is cold. Sham and Sam means cold and Shemi and Sem means cold place.

The conversion of “G” into “Gehran” to “T” is in the dialect of the people of Ghasran and3 the villages and natural surroundings. Just as the word “Gel” is pronounced “Til” or “Towell”. ((Ghasran, Volume I, pages 56 and 57)

Tehran existed before Islam, but after Islam, it became known as Tehran and became Tehran. But the names of geographers of that time have also been mentioned by Tehran. At the same time as the constitutional movement, with a lot of changes in literature and writing of the Persian language, the spelling of Tehran became commonplace, and after the establishment of the Persian Language and Literature Academy and the emphasis on the spelling of Tehran, another spelling (Tehran) was abandoned.

  • The Encyclopedia of the Islamic World on the name of Tehran has stated:

Writing the name of this city as “Tehran”, the first writings about Tehran and Tehran have been prevalent in recent years, because geographers and other authors who wrote in Arabic often used the names of Iranians who began with ” Taha “(d. Islam, first edition, vol. 8, p. 713).

Yaghut Hamavi (p. 3, p. 564), while using Tehran, considered the word Ajami, and pointed out that the people here, they say, are Tehran because they do not exist in their language.

In the works of historians and geographers and terminologists, until the Reza Shah of Pahlavi period (carved 13041320), the term “Tehran” was commonly used. Farhad Mirza Qajar (Motamed al-Dawlah, dying 1305) also came to Tehran in the book Jamjam (p. 460), but Aliqulimorza Etiadad al-Saltanah, who in 1270 became Nasir al-Din Shah minister of sciences, preferred to write the word Tehran (Etemad al-Saltanah, 1988). , Vol. 1, p. 824 825).

In the text of the constitutional constitution (14th of December, 1324) and its amendment (29th of Shaban 1325) is used by Tehran. Jamalzadeh (p. 8-10) was written in 1339 by Tehran, and although some of the writers of Tehran wrote in the Reza Shah period, they wrote some Tehran writers, for example, in the Dehkhoda dictionary, information about Tehran was given below by Tehran.

Although linguistic attempts have repeatedly been conducted on Tehran’s word, its origins and meanings are not clear. Kasravi (1335, p. 16-18; Hamoo, 1378, p. 212, 212, 219, 219) considered Tehran a “place and a warm land” and composed of two parts of the lower Teh (the warmth) and Ran (the place) It means “warmth”. He (1335, p. 9-15; Hemoun, 1378, p. 205, 212, 2116) also considered Shemiran a “place and a land of cold”, composed of two components (cold) and thigh (the place), and in general it The “cabinet” has meaning; according to him, Shemiran is the summerhouse of the Tehranians, but Shahriar Adal (p. 14-15) did not accept Kasravi’s opinion on the first part of these names.

As to attack the Mongol invasion (7th century), Tehran was still a village, and according to historic documents, the villages of Dolab and Tajrish and Vanak were more famous than Tehran …  Agha Mohammad Khan-e-Qajar chose Tehran as the capital, and in 11 Jamadi al-awal Tehran took the lead.

  • Religious places of Tehran
