Talaar-e Salam (Salute Hall), Golestan Palace
A 19th century Talaar would be centrally situated, often under the main Iwan, where evening services would be performed for members of the Andaruni. Image is of Amerian House in Kashan.

The Talaar (Persian: تالار‎) is the throne of the Persian monarchs carved on the rock-cut tomb of Darius at Naqsh-e Rostam, near Persepolis, and above the portico which was copied from his palace.
