Mountains have played a prominent role in ancient civilizations and rituals and have always been admired by people but they deserve more attention in Iran due to a topography specific to this country. They were of considerable importance to such an extent that civilizations such as Elamite and Sumerian built their ziggurats resembling a mountain like Chogha Zanbil. Albourz as the most magnificent and highest mountain range is located in the north of Tehran. Being a vital natural element determining the limits of Tehran, these mountains are regarded as one of the factors constructing the identity of the city. Today, a merely physical consideration of these mountains has caused that there is not a good relationship between the city and the mountains, but these mountains as the most important urban edge of Tehran naturally can play a key role in identity construction and development of a good relationship with the city. With regard to the importance of Albourz and its massive impact on the city, the present article aimed to examine the role of these mountains within the urban planning of Tehran through the main document of the comprehensive plan adopted in 2007. The day has been collected based on qualitative research and the case study.
