Tombs of Famous Iranian Women in Takht-e Fulad Cemetery

 05 January 2004

 

 

The unique revered historical cemetery of Takht-e Fulad in southeast of Isfahan, is the burial place of more than eighteen prominent Iranian women.

Archaeologists and historians consider the cemetery an invaluable complex of the tombs of sages, artists, poets and great men of science, religion and politics.

They believe that the most ancient grave in the cemetery belongs to Yusha' ibn Nun- messenger and the executor of the will of Moses- dating back to more than two thousand years ago.

The cemetery gained prominence in the Safavid era, when bodies from all around the country were transferred and buried there.
