Khorshid Palace

Nader Shah’s ‘Khorshid Palace’ isn’t really a palace at all but a distinctively fluted, circular tomb-tower, on an octagonal base set in manicured lawns. (The name Khorshid (literally ‘sun’) refers to one of Nader’s wives, not some arcane astronomical purpose.) It was never finished, hence the odd proportions and lack of a dome.
