Related to Qom city (located in Qom province)
The said cave is at a distance of 60 km. from Qom, in the mountainous region of Ardhal. In this vicinity four caves or pits have been identified. In one of these there is a large expanse of water. The water has seeped in through crevices in the mountain and gushes out in the form of a spring. This cave proves interesting from tourism point of view.
