The building of municipality of Tabriz has built in 1934 by German engineers. Its top view is like a flying eagle. In the last floor of the building, there is a four-face clock and because of the clock, the building also called Sa'at tower which means clock tower. It is located in Sa'at square in the city centre. Since 2007 a part of the building is being used as Municipal museum and now holding huge old carpets and so many interesting objects.
