After the Iranian Revolution in 1979, the square was renamed to "31st of Shahrivar Sq.", however the new name did not stick and it is still known as the "Hassan Abad Square". Hasan Abad Square is one the designed urban spaces in old Tehran. Hasan Abad Sq. is located in the intersection of two main streets Hafez and Sepah and erected in the first Pahlavi reign (1930-1940).
