Saein Ghaleh (Sain Qaleh) hillock is situated within the vicinity of Imamzadeh Yahya (a place of pilgrimage). This tapeh extends to an area of 60m. x 4 m. and stands 4 m. in height. The above mentioned area is said to have been a place for human settlement, in three different periods through out the ages. Firstly, due to the presence of the shrine or Imamzadeh, and considering it sacred, hence the later Islamic graves were buried in this area and has approximately covered the hill.
