Iran probably isn't the first place you think of when it comes to world-class architecture, but from a previous study of beautiful buildings in Iran, we know the country has a lot of architectural gems.

When the Milad Tower in Tehran, Iran was officially launched Tuesday, it became the fourth tallest tower in the world at 435 meters (1,427 ft) and is the "12th tallest freestanding structure" according to Wikipedia.

Iran Daily called the Milad Tower, also known as Borj-e Milad, "A symbol of the Iranian modernization," and as the images prove, it truly is a cutting edge piece of architecture.

The Milad Tower servers several purposes, including entertainment; the art gallery and rotating restaurant could serve as some of the hottest new destinations in the capital of Iran. Stats for Modern Monuments in Iran Trending: Older & Mild
