Khorheh Temple: Archaeological Site in Iran - Tourism news

There is a temple in southern part of Arak, on the way to Kashan, with two Greek columns still standing strong…’ this is what Louis Vanden Berghe, Belgian archeologist, has written in his book: Archeology of Iran.

The columns he was talking about are made from quality Travertine stone, locally mined in Mahallat, the holder of large deposits of this mineral stone in Iran.

Seventy peaks of mountain range are situated at the northern border of this 3550 Sq. meters temple. The evidences of the presence of mankind in the fire temple region dates back to two millenniums B. C.
