Sialk is a hill in the city of Kashan around which remnant of 8000 years of history has been found. It is now well fenced and is like a compound which can be explored. The closing time is 6:30, which I think is very soon,...More

I really enjoyed this place.The idea that I was standing where people lived 1000's of years ago was pretty surreal. The sign says 8000years but that is claimed in a few places but anyway it s very OLD. The views are also good>
