Morvarid Palace is a large estate built by Shams Pahlavi, elder sister of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran, in the late 1960s. It is located near Hesarak and Mehrshahr, in the western suburbs of Karaj, Iran.
The palace was designed by The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
The majority of the complex is currently occupied by a local Baseej chapter who are neglecting its upkeep. Small parts are open to the public as a result of pressure from the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran.
The building was recognized as a cultural value only in 2002, and registered by the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran. It is currently in need of massive repairs.
