Hashti Building

Related to Qom city (located in Qom province)
The said building is near the mausoleum of Khak Faraj. In the midst of this structure is a well with a hillock on it. There are two theories related to this vicinity. The first is that the Hajar-ol-Asvad (or the black stone) in Mecca, was transferred from here to the Kaba . The second theory is that this well was dug so as to gain water, but due to an earthquake the well was set ablaze (without the use of fuel). It is due to this reason that the belief goes that one of the three largest fire-temples of the Zoroastrians was located in this vicinity.
It is said that the city of Qom existed in the pre-Islamic ages, whereas, some believe that the same belongs to the post Islamic times. 'Kom' was the name of the ancient rampart of the city of Qom, thus, the Arabs called it Qom (or Ghom).
