Azadi Square (Persian: میدان آزادی‎) is a city square in Tehran, Iran.

It has an area of about 50,000 m2, plus adjacent areas, and is the largest square in Tehran and the second largest in Iran, being smaller than Naqsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan.

The 50 m Azadi Tower is in the center of the square.

It was called Shahyad (Persian: شهیاد‎; literally "Remembrance of the Shahs (Kings)") Square before the Iranian Revolution, and was the site of many of the Revolution's demonstrations leading up to 12 December 1979. The square was again the site of mass opposition during the 2009–2010 Iranian election protests.....
