Shah Zand Cave

Related to Arak city (located in Markazi province)
This cave is 35 km. to the south west of Arak. From ancient times this cave was a sacred and pilgrimage site for the Zoroastrians and annually many Zoroastrians from all over the country as well as India visit this cave for pilgrimage. On the walls of the cave various Iranian and Zoroastrian names such as "Poolad Tirandaz" and "Siavash Shahryar" have been engraved. Near the Iraj village, there is a village named "Gowza". In this village there are some graves with huge tombstones, highly respected by Zoroastrians. It appears that these graves are related to the ones in the cave. People believe that famous brave men who accompanied "Keykhosrow" the mythical hero in the "Shahnameh" of "Ferdowsi" are buried here.
