The mountaineer statue of Darband - Tehran
One of the most attractive parts of Darband is the 3 meters Statue of a climber. This statue was built in memory of an officer who saved some foreign climbers who their plane crashed to northern Mountains of Tehran about 50 years ago. A German paratrooper was sent to save them but he stuck also to the rocks and then Sergeant Amir Shahghadami was chosen to save this group. He bravely rescued the entire group, receiving a medal of courage from US President John Kennedy and being honored by the Iranian government at that time, due to gratitude of his brave operation, his statue was built in the middle of the Square in that region.
