Maneh & Samalghan, Rich in Historical Heritage

Maneh and Samalghan in the northern part of Khorasan province, northeast of Iran, enjoy a great historical background, with more than 140 historical monuments turning it into a valuable site.

According to head of the Cultural Heritage Department of Maneh and Samalghan Habib Sadri-Far, the richness of cultural and historical heritage in the area, including Ava hill, Khan castle, the Yellow stone monument, and different Imam Zadehs has led to the creation of numerous rural cultural heritage associations there.

In Avesta the Zoroastrians holy book, the area has been acknowledged as the route used by the Aryans (Iranians), and the discovery of more than 700 coins of the Sasanian period, plus the ancient city of Aziz Abad which has been the key government center of the Parthian dynasty, are signs of the historical and national importance of the area.

He also named the Espakhu stone monument, which is a beautiful Zoroastrian fire temple known as Espakhu Church among people, as the most intact historical monument of the Sasanian era in Khorasan, adding that the monument is just six kilometers away from the international road in the area and can be considered one of the most important tourist attractions there.

Richness of the historical monuments has attracted many looters to the area, making illegal excavations one of the greatest worries in Maneh and Samalghan, declared Sadri-Far.

The area, despite its rich historical heritage and also its diverse ethnicity, is not so far properly introduced, still left unknown to many.
