Triple Banmasity Cave: A Tourist Attraction of Iran - Tourism news

In the Shahbazband Mountains, about 25m above ground level, there are two man-made caves and one natural one. The trio is called Banmasity Caves by locals. In the local language, ban means a pious person and masity is a place of worship.

Inside the small natural cave, there is a cubic grave whose dome is 40cm in height. On three sides of the dome, there are inscriptions and signs in red and purple which are similar to Indian writing.

Seven steps away, there is a second cave made of stucco and stone. The third cave is 50 m away. These caves seem to have served as either a shelter or a place of worship. At the entrance to all three caves, there is a platform that seems to have been used for religious rituals.

Things to Know Before Trip
