Modern Palaces IV 10 Months, 1 Week ago  
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to take some pictures of actual palaces. Now that some time has passed, I would like to share those pictures just to show what they looked like.

Please, no politics. I really want this to be about the architecture.


Pictures of the Victory Over Iran Palace. I couldn't take any of the inside, as it was being used as a dormitory at the time.


VOI to the right, Victory Over America to the left, taken from the Mother-in-Law's Residence.


VOI and VOA. The lighter stone color (a trick of the light) is VOI.


Nothin' but VOI. Note how he top corner of each window is slightly rounded, instead of square like the bottom corners.


VOI from the other side. This palace was at the end of a long isthmus.


The transition between VOI (left) and VOA (right).

A view of the front of the palace, a covered drive-thru.


The entrance from the side.


Closer on the entrance from the front. Nice big arches, but not meant for access.


The main entrance. Double doors. There's a balcony above. The semicircle of dots above the door is made of Iranian military helmets.


A close-up of the top of one of the decorative pillars beside the main door.


Looking out through the arches of the front entrance.


A dedication plaque in the entryway. The scoring was done by locals.


Dead center in the entryway, looking up. That's a mount for a hanging light or chandelier in the center.

That was a short one.
