In the Classical era, part of the present-day city of Tehran was occupied by a Median city, which in the Avesta occurs as Rhaga. It was destroyed by the Mongols in the early 13th century, and remains now as a city in Tehran Province, located towards the southern end of the modern-day city of Tehran.
Sadeghiyeh (also Sadeghieh, Sadeqiyeh) (Persian:صادقیه) is a heavily populated district of Tehran, Iran. Also called by its pre-revolutionary name Aryashahr (also Ariashahr) (Persian: آریاشهر), it is one of Tehran's busiest commercial and residential centers. It is connected via Tehran's Metro and monorail lines to other parts of the city. The Sadighiyeh metro station is one of the busiest stations in Tehran where lines 2 and 5 (Karaj Intercity Train) intersect.
Sadighiyeh has two main squares called Falakeye Aval Sadighiyeh and Falakeye Dovom Sadighiyeh.

After showing little ability as a two-year-old he improved in the following spring to win the Culford Stakes on his three-year-old debut. He ran third in the 2000 Guineas and was narrowly beaten into second place in the Derby Stakes. After winning the Whepstead Stakes he recorded his biggest win when defeating a strong field in a substitute St Leger. He won his first three races in 1945 and finished second in the Ascot Gold Cup. He later became a successful breeding stallion, siring several major winners including Tulyar.
