Azadi Tower, also known as Borj-e Āzādī, "Liberty Tower", formerly known as the Shahyad Tower, monument in Tehran City,  marking the west entrance to the city, and one of the symbols of the city. Embassy of the United States of America in Tehran was severed following the Iranian Revolution in 1979, and the subsequent seizure of the embassy in November 1979. The Former Embassy of Iran in Washington, D.C. is also defunct as Iran does not currently have an embassy in the United States. Its interests are handled through the Interests Section of the Islamic Republic of Iran in the United States at the Pakistan Embassy in Washington D.C. Imāmzādeh Sāleh is one of many Imāmzadeh mosques in Iran. The mosque is located at Tajrish Square in Tehran's northern Shemiran district. The mosque entombs the remains of Sāleh, a son of the Twelver Shī‘ah Imām, Mūsā al-Kādhim. Shāh Abdol Azīm Shrine, located in Rey, Iran, contains the tomb of Shah Abdol Azim. He was entombed here after his death in the 9th century. Adjacent to the shrine, within the complex, include the mausolea of Imamzadeh Tahir (son of the fourth shia Imam Sajjad), and Imamzadeh Hamzeh (brother of the eighth Twelver Imām - Imām Reza).
