  • Temple atop a clear modern replica. climb a mountain, too, is not an easy one, as the descent (in any case not to climb upward in slippers or sandals). but from the top of a splendid view of the Isfahan and environs. You should definitely visit.

  • Everything was there but the fire :)) Definitely worth visiting, well preserved. It shows that Iranian people take care of their heritage. Keep it up!
  • You pay 15k toman to get up and climb all the way to the top which is empty. The wind is strong, scenery is mediocre. The climb is challenging but what is absolutely disappointing is the cheat. There was an elderly guy who motioned us to follow him. He led us up, and frantically waving his hands to beckon us come. He took us up. He also told us to follow him down. I suspected he wanted to ask for some money. I resolved to stay up. He waited. I sneaked down. He spotted me. And yes, he asked me for money.
  • Don't listen to non 5 or 4 star rates... it s a fun thing to do and the view around sunset is amazing!
  • Very nice... this place is a hard way
  • Challenging climb and mildy rewarding view at the top. 15000 toman
