KERMANSHAH, THE ANCIENT IRANIAN HEARTLAND

Kermanshah Travel Guide

Located right at the foot of the Zagros Mountains, Kermanshah has a lot to offer to its visitors. People in Kermanshah are Kurds who forge a large portion of ethnic groups in Iran. Despite so many earthquakes, Kermanshah has still preserved historical and archaeological sites for its enthusiasts.

Kermanshah is a great embodiment of prehistoric culture since excavations prove people’s settlements belonging to more than 10000 years ago.

What to Do in Kermanshah?

Kermanshah was massively destroyed during the Iran-Iraq war and only a few of its sites are still preserved. Taq Bostan is a MUST- see in Kermanshah. It is a craving depicting religious and royal ceremonies during the Sassanid Era. The 2000-year-old Bistoun World Heritage Site is another eye-appealing carvings that unfold a love story.

Takieh Mo’aven ol-Molk, Temple of Anahita, Ghoori Ghaleh Cave, and Shafei Mosque are other famous attractions of Kermanshah.

While visiting Kermanshah do not forget trying the very delicious sweet Nan Berenji which is made with Kermanshahi Oil as well. Dande Kebab and Tarkhine are also other foods you have to try there. Note that, being a baker and pastry chef is the main profession of locals and can be a suitable souvenir.
