Pictures of Milad tower construction stages

After an international competition, the project was awarded to the Llewely Davies Company, and construction was inaugurated on August 19, 1975, with the Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and the Mayor of capital Dr G. R. Nickpay burying a commemorative gold plaque.  There is also another background of building this tower, since the construction of the tower was started after the 1979 revolution. The new government of Iran wanted to create a new symbol for Tehran to replace the Azadi Tower that was a symbol of Pahlavi’s reign.
