Overview

Teimareh Petroglyphs – Engraved Figures

Golpayegan county is located 200 km Northwest of Isfahan. Golpayegan is famous because of its wonderful weather, delicious kebabs and several historical sites, such as Jameh mosque, Minaret of Seljuk period and Gouged Stronghold. It is said that this city was made in the Sassanid era.

A few kilometers far from Golpayegan, in the heart of the Zagros Mountains, we get to the wonderful Teimareh Petroglyphs.

The engraved figures have been found in many places in Iran, but Teimareh demonstrates more than 21000 pieces. Another interesting fact is the existence of one piece of epigraphy with 150 figures on it. These figures display the story of the time that human first started hunting, domesticating animals and growing plants.

This priceless treasure dates back to more than 40000 years ago which shows humans and different animals. You can see a human hunting, lions and snakes. However what is interesting is that most of these figures are goats. It is said by the experts that goat was the symbol of happiness and liveliness at that time.

Mehr als zufrieden! Waren vor Corona im Iran und hatten anfangs Probleme mit dem Visum. Wenige Tage nachdem wir uns an TAP Persia gewendet hatten, hatten wir das Visum in der Hand. Auch bei anderen Fragen oder Problemen stand uns das Unternehmen schnell und freundlich zur Seite!Wir waren von TAP Persia mehr als begeistert und können deren Leistungen zu 100% weiterempfehlen!

Patient and informative. 5star tour guide. We were a group of 4.Thanks to our last moment schedule we had not booked a tour. Tappersia was kind enough to let the local tour guide know and he was very promptly arranged to meet us for the FREE ISFAHAN WALKING TOUR. Amin was the tour guide. He greeted us warmly as we entered Chehre Sotoon palace and what started there ended up with it being the most interesting walk of my life. He was patient with our queries and waited as our mixed group which had people from Spain and Argentina with us.... As info had to be translated for them to Spanish. A free walk in any part of the world usually lasts for an hour or two.... Not amin he would treat all our doubts and questions with respect and answer them.... Ended up with the free walk lasting more than half a day. Will go with 4/5 stars for Amin.

Excellent and fast service I wanted to buy travel insurance from them but their payment system wasn't working so I used the chat functionality on their website, they got back to me within 15 min, they contacted me directly, sent me the insurance papers before I even paid and showed so much goodwill. I was really astonished by their fast response and great service!

Most relaxed holiday thanks to Tappersia We came to Iran in a troubled time so booked everything through Tappersia just so that we would feel a bit more secure but the experience was beyond expectations. I have never had a more relaxed holiday. Everything was already booked for us; we had a private car picking us up every time we changed places, offering tours and stops in between all this on a very affordable price and always being there for every question we had. Totally recommend!

Petroglyph Tour

Ivan is an expert. He took us to the desert to show us the sky. Our tour guides were able to engage our younger daughter. I will encourage friends and families to visit Iran and enjoy this tour.

Fabulous tour of the petroglyphs

Our guide was fabulous. Having grown up playing around these petroglyphs, made the tour more intimate and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain things and let us take pics.
