During the 9th century A.D. seven gates made entrance to the city possible. In Qajar period there existed nine gates surrounding the city which were connected to each other through a wall around the city. These gates (darvāzeh in Persian) were: Panbeh Riseh, Sheikh Abad, Rasht, Maghlävak, Khandaghbar, Shahzadeh Hossein, Mossala, Tehran, Räh e Koushk. Due to 20th century urban expansion, unfortunately only the last two gates remain standing.
