Which country is Karaj?
Karaj is the fourth of the largest cities in Iran and is located at an altitude of about 1,300 m at the foot of the Elburs Mountains about 40 km west of Tehran with the river of the same name through the city.
Due to the expansion of Tehran, the city borders with Karaj have become blurred and many people think that Karaj is part of Tehran, which is not the case administratively. Karaj is the fourth largest city in Iran. Karaj has been the capital of Alborz province since 2010.
The Imamzade Hasan and the Imamzadeh Rahman are considered the sanctuary of the city. On the western edge of Karaj (Hesarak/Mehrshahr) is the Morvarid Palace, which was built in the 1960s under Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi.
