The Azadi Square (Persian: میدان آزادی, romanized: Meydāne Āzādī, lit. ’Freedom Square’), formerly known as Shahyad Square (Persian: میدان شهیاد Meydāne Ŝahyād literally means “Remembrance of [the] Shah Square”), is a mainly green city square in Tehran, Iran. It hosts as its centerpiece the Azadi Tower. The tower and square were commissioned by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran, to mark the 2,500th year of the foundation of the Imperial State of Iran.
