Historic Sites Nature Sightseeing
Hamadan has served as a summer getaway since the Sasanian Empire ruled this part of the world nearly 2,000 years ago. This ancient city--some speculate it's among the world's oldest--appears in Herodotus' chronicles and the Hebrew Bible, though little remains of its rich and storied heritage today. Many make a trip to Hamadan on their way to the impressive water cave some 100 km (62 mi) to the north. Top attractions in Hamadan itself include tombs of Persian intellectual luminaries and the biblical Esther and Mordechai, as well as the nearby Mount Alvand. Do spend a little time browsing for locally made carpets, leather, and ceramics, known for their high quality. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Hamadan trip itinerary using our Iran trip generator.

Where to stay in Hamadan

Hamadan offers relatively few places to stay, with just a handful of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses distributed throughout the city's concentrically arranged areas. Most options fall between mid-range and budget, offering simple rooms and a humble set of amenities. You may need to temper expectations when it comes to bathroom arrangements and customer service. Since attractions also lie in different parts of the city, no one location offers a particularly advantageous position for sightseeing, as long as you're within the larger ring road.
