Historical complex of Niavaran is located in a large garden with an area of about 11 hectares in northern Tehran, enjoying a lot of natural and historical beauty and fascination. The monuments of this complex belong to the Qajar and Pahlavi periods.

Next to the village called "Gorde Vey" or "Gorde be", it was located in Niavaran today, was built gardens instead of piers located in the vicinity of the village. The Fath Ali Shah summer garden, which was created in the canebrake, was called "Ney Avaran", later known as Niavaran. In this garden, Mohammad Shah built a small and simple building, and in the following Nasser-al-Din Shah was built "Saheb-Qaraniyeh Palace" in this garden. The last building was built in the garden during the Qajar era is known as the Ahmad Shahi palace.
During the reign of Pahlavi II, some of the small buildings were destroyed and the Niavaran Palace was built in a modern style for Mohammad Reza Shah and his family's residence.
