Historical cemetery of Ardabil

Ardabil is known for many attractions with its unique nature and delicate weather. One of the most interesting historical places in this city is the ancient area that is situated near Pirazman village of Meshkin Shahr in Ardabil Province of Iran.

The area of this historical location is 400 hectares and consists of three parts: military fort, temple, and Qusha Tappe. The castle and temple date back to 1450 BC and the Qusha Tappe dates back to the seventh millennium BC.

Some archaeologists also estimate it around 900 years old. On this site, there are also a number of statues and carved stones on which mouthless faces are depicted date back to about 7,000 BC. Their dimensions vary from 2 meters to 40 centimeters, and their approximate number reaches more than a hundred. Around 450 graves have been identified in Yeri cemetery.

There is just a woman among to statues. It has been said that up to now such rocks have been funded in the Ghopozestan Azerbaijani and seven pieces have been seen in the Kurdistan province of Turkey.

How to go there: If you want to travel with your personal vehicle to Ardabil, you can use the road from Asalem to Khalkhal. The other route to Ardabil is the Tehran-Karaj-Zanjan-Ardebil route, which is about 590 kilometers long and takes around 7 hours.
