TEHRAN – The Tehran City Council approved on Tuesday to rename several streets after contemporary Iranian artists. 

Based on a report published by the council, Falamak Boulevard in the Shahrak-e Gharb neighborhood will soon be called Mohammadreza Shajarian Boulevard after the legendary vocalist, while Sepand Street in the Aqdasieh neighborhood will become Ezzatollah Entezami Street after the late legendary actor. 

24-Meter Street in the Saadatabad district will be retitled after actor Mohammad-Ali Keshavarz and the name of Kokab Street in the Shahrara neighborhood will be changed to Gholamhossein Amirkhani, calligrapher.

In addition, Nilufar Street will be renamed in honor of actor Ali Nasirian. 
 
Most of the streets that have been selected to be given new names are in the locations of the artists’ houses. 

Earlier this month, the council gave its approval to rename Jeem Street in the Velenjak neighborhood after the actor Jamshid Mashayekhi, who passed away on April 1.
