    Default Golestan Palace complex, Tehran, Iran.

    Golestan Palace is an example of unique mixture of western and middle eastern architecture.













    One of inhabitants of the Golestan Palace was Nasser ad-Din Qajar, ruling as Shah of Persia from 1848 until 1896. He was the first modern Persian monarch to visit Europe in 1873 and then again in 1878 (when he saw a British Royal Navy fleet review), and finally in 1889 and was reportedly amazed with the technology he saw there.

    Default Castillo de chapultepec, mexico d.f.

    First of all an apology for my bad English.
    Chapultepec Castle, a palatial building located atop the hill of the same name, in the middle of Chapultepec Park, located in Mexico City at an altitude of 2325 meters over sea level. It was built by Viceroy Bernardo de Galvez and Madrid on the Hill of the Grasshopper (Chapultepec is Nahuatl word "Chapulli, grasshoppers, and sod (tl), hill Chapultepetl" which means "hill of grasshoppers" or "hill of the grasshopper "). Built in the era of the Viceroyalty of New Spain as a summer house for the Viceroy. In 1785, at the time of the Viceroyalty, Viceroy Bernardo de Gálvez ordered the construction of a house in the height of the hill of Chapultepec.
