The Eiffel tower is an iron tower erected in Paris on the Champs de Mars fields between 1887 and 1889 as the entrance arch for the World's Fair held in 1889 to mark the centennial of the French revolution. Its name is derived from Gustave Eiffel, the engineer who designed the tower. The tower has a height of 325m and was world's tallest tower until New York City's Chrysler building was completed in 1931.
