Journey over the 7,000-foot-high Asadabad Pass, the main gateway into western Iran. You’ll visit the remains of the Anahita Temple from the Parthian period (247 B.C.–224 A.D.) in Kangavar before arriving along the ancient Persian trade route in Bisotun to view an ancient inscription — the largest inscription from the Achaemenid period, the first Persian Empire, ever found. Dating to the sixth century B.C., it depicts the Persian King Darius I, victorious in his battle against a Median ruler, and tells the story of his conquests.
Next, visit Hamadan. Some believe the Assyrians first occupied this city in 1100 B.C., but Herodotus says it was the capital of the Medes, an early Iranian people, around 700 B.C. Either way, this lovely city at the base of Mount Alvand attracts many trekkers and other travelers each summer, intent on discovering its Persian secrets.
Visit the ancient excavated site of Ecbatana, the first Median kingdom of Iran. You’ll also see three architecturally beautiful buildings: two churches and the lovely Gonbad-e Alavian, a 12th-century mausoleum whose dome indicates it may have been originally intended as a mosque. You’ll also explore what Judeo-Persians believe to be the tomb of Queen Esther and Mordechai, regarded as the most important pilgrimage site for Iranian Jews. The tour will continue into the crypt, which also contains Hebrew inscriptions and a copy of the Ten Commandments.
