Zanjan

About Zanjan

Zanjan, the city most famous for Dome of Soltaniyeh, which was listed as UNESCO World Heritage site in 2005. Attractions here range from historical, to architectural, to natural; so no tourist leaves disappointed. While in Zanjan, make sure to visit Rakhtshooy Khaneh Edifice; a traditional Qajari era laundry house that depicts the cultural life of the people better than anywhere else in Iran. But is you’re a thrill seeker in the mood for some funky-looking rocks, check out the creepy hoodoos (tall, thin towers of rocks) not far from the main city to learn about cave-dwelling ancient Persians of this very land.
