Nushijan Citadel, Hamedan, Iran - Tourism news

Nushijan is one of the world’s oldest adobe architectures, and yet one of Iran’s least known.

Nushijan probably means the seat of Nush, or Anoush, which are both girls’ names in Persian, and the name of the woman who ruled over this area.

Between 1964 and 1977, a season of archaeological excavations was conducted by David Stronach at the British Institute of Iranian Studies (BIPS) at the site and renovations were also carried out.

The achievements of the team are the identification of three ancient architectural periods pertaining to the Mede, Achaemenid, and Parthian eras.

This ancient edifice is situated in Hamedan Province, western Iran. A twenty-kilometer drive on the Malayer-Hamedan road will lead to this place on the left-hand side by road.
