Damavand

    Sixty-six km to the east of Tehran, to the right of Tehran-Firouz Kuh road, Damavand is a small town set in a closed-off and well-watered valley below the foothills of Mount Damavand whose cone is not visible from this place. During the summer months, its population is swollen by an influx of holiday makers.
Archaeological excavations carried out in the site of the modern town of Damavand have shown its occupation since the Neolithic times (5th millennium BC). The origins of the town go back to the Sassanian period. In the historical districts of the town as well as in its neighboring villages, there remain some relics belonging to the beginning of the Islamic period, the 11 century AD, and the Seljuk period.
