Ancient Arabic settlement in Kish. This is also covered by the city tour. A small issue is they don't talk in English, so getting information from tour guides is a bit difficult.

Iran holds and contributed a lot in our history and seeing the remnants of the past is really overwhelming. It is very easy to instantly appreciate its glory even in its current state. I hope it will still be preserved for future generations to see.

The ruins of an ancient city going back to about 1000 years ago. Worth a short visit and taking some photos
