Huraman Village

Huraman Village

a beautiful historical village in a valley of Zagreus mountain range, where its mountain-hemmed position kept it unknown for many years. The architectural style of the village is similar to that of Masouleh and Hajij, where the roof of a house is the yard of another house, that are made of stone using the method of dry-stack. An inscription from Iron age was found here that belongs to Sargon, the Assyrian king, about his wars with different nations. Another important finding of this area is a parchment from Parthian era, which is the deed of a land. What is significant about the deed is that it shows that people were known base on their father’s and grandfather’s name. A very interesting event is celebrated here that is known as “Pir-e Shaliar”, who was a Theurgist and healed the daughter of the king and by king’s order married her. Their wedding day is when the celebration is held.
