Iran Photos Part VII: Takht-e Soleymān

Takht-e Soleymān (Persian: تخت سلیمان‎,  “the Throne of Solomon”) is a stunning archaeological site on top of a volcano. Beside the crater lake are ruins from different periods dating back to pre-islamic zoroastrian times. Placed in this hight deserted area, equipped with a spring-lake which is providing endless water its a impressive place. The place was one of the most important zorastrian firetempel. sadly there was hardly any information about this interesting place, so I just link you here to the Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takht-e_Soleym%C4%81n
