The giant statue of Amir Kabir will finally be situated at Tehran’s Mellat Park during a ceremony on Monday.

 The bronze sculpture of Mirza Taqi Khan Farahani, best known as Amir Kabir (1807-1852), the prime minister of the Qajar king Nasser ad-Din Shah, was created by Abolhassan Seddiqi in Italy before the Islamic Revolution and has come home 32 years later.

 The choice of location to install the giant sculpture of Amir Kabir provoked much controversy.

 Fereidun Seddiqi, the son of deceased sculptor was convinced that Golestan Palace, where Amir Kabir once served as prime minister of Iran, was the best place for the giant sculpture of Amir Kabir.
