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.
