Iran Encompassed ( Tehran>Hamedan>Zanjan>Tabriz>Ardebil> Tehran)
North Western Iran’ explores the fabulous landscape of the west and northwest of Iran, and combines four of the renowned UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Iran: the 5th century BC rock relief at Bisotun accompanied by a trilingual inscription being one of the most important historical documents of ancient Persia cut on a high cliff by Darius the Great to commemorate his victory over nine rebel kings; the fabulous early 14th-century Gonbad-iSoltaniyeh, a reminder of the great advances in Islamic architecture and indicative of precise mathematical calculations of Iranian architects; the magnificent complex of palaces and temples of Takht-iSoleyman built in the midst of Zagros mountains; and the Armenian Monastic Ensembles of Iran, an example of outstanding universal value of the Armenian architectural and decorative traditions that bear testimony to very important interchanges with the other regional cultures, in particular the Byzantine, Orthodox and Persian. The tour concludes in an enchanting visit to the exquisite shrine complex of a widely revered Sufi philosopher of the 14th century, Sheikh SafieddinArdebili.
