The Ramsar Palace Museum (Marmar Palace, Marble Palace, Ramsar Royal Palace) is one of the historic buildings and royal residences in Ramsar (North of Iran) in Mazandaran Province. This Palace was established on a land of 60,000 square meters in 1937 and was used as a summer residence by Reza Shah and then by his son, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and his second spouse Sorayya Esfendiari spent their honeymoon in the palace.
The palace has been used as a museum since 2000. It is called the Ramsar Palace museum or the Caspian museum and is known by locals as "Tamashagah Khazar".
The historical garden of Ramsar and its relative structures are on national record and under support of the Cultural Heritage Organization of Iran. This garden covers an area of 60,000 sq. m. and is one of the beautiful and traditional gardens in Mazandaran province and Iran. The edifice within is a single storeyed, rectangular building, with a central hall, rooms and a porch with columns of stone. The architectural plan has involved great detail and shows the imprint of the reign of Pahlavi I , with its marble, plaster and mirror works.
After the revolution, the palace was curbed by Mostazafan Organization and it was opened under the title “Khazar Spectacle” in the form of a public museum in 1379 to present Ramsar resting palace and the monuments in the palace and to study the various monuments related to the Caspian Sea field. The furniture being showed in this museum include, the sofas, antique candlesticks and buffets, precious bronze and marble statues and paintings by well-known painters of the world.
There is a pine tree with 23 meters high in the area in front of the palace that was planted in 2013. This pine tree is known as 4 horns or Kashefi Pine Tree. There is also a blue pool in front of the palace where several caviar fish are kept for decoration. Ramsar Marble Palace is inside Rmsar City and on a very easily-accessible path. The palace is known as Marble Palace for the many marbles used for its construction.
Possibly the most scenic spot on the Caspian coast, Ramsar is where the jungle-clad lower ridges of the snow-topped Alborz tumble into the sea. It's a verdant, photogenic area, lush with orange groves, and there are walking trails into the nearby hills.
