A very old village from Stone Age. There are two caves that were amazingly reserved and it shows how primitive humans lived. Take a walk to the houses, they offer visits for free and you can buy gifts from locals for a very good price.

Beautiful place with minimal crowd. Tourists are mostly Iranians, though I could spot few westerners. The place is well preserved. Highly recommended if you are visiting east Azerbaijan region of Iran.
