  • These ruins can be admired at the top of a mountain and in the middle of the top, it seems it was a crater, which today is a large lake, where no stops flowing water. The ruins are very beautiful and interesting, where you can see their buildings as well as the entire defensive perimeter, a special place of history and culture of the country.

  • it's great, don't miss it. you can go there and have a one day visit but there is no place to stay during the night and also try not to drive during the night. you have to be careful about gas. the most important thing that I have to tell you is there is a great winter view waiting for you there, but the road is really dangerous in winter so watch yourself.
  • Although not much left of its grandiose days but still is magical place the surroundings and the ruins can still give u a shiver of what it was. Worth visiting.
  • Takht-e Soleyman or Azar Goshnasp is an archaeological site in West Azarbaijan, which was one of the three most important Zoroastrian fire temples built during the Sassanid period. It was partially rebuilt during the Ilkhanid period. The site was designated as a World Heritage Site in July 2003, of course, it's one of the destinations which travelers who had historical interest must visit in Iran
  • One of the best historical places to visit in Iran. I would recommend it 100%
  • Beautiful ancient palace now in ruin that brings you the past realm of Sasanians. You can still walk though the roofless palace and the remote quary. The remote lake seems to pop out from nowhere and is quite impressive to observe. It seems ridiculous to drive for hours from Teheran but definitely worth it! A must!
