Takab City

in West Azerbaijan province
The township of Takab (Tekab) is one of the historical sites of the province, well worth visiting. These historical relics are from the pre-Islamic period. The famous 'Takht-e-Soleiman' castle which is 45 km. northeast of Takab, is where the large fire-temple from the Sassanian era is located known as Azar Goshasb (one of the three large fire-temples of the Sassanian periods). The remnants of which remains within a rampant, in addition to a natural spring and a large pool.

It is believed that the city of Sheez stood here, but due to the volcanic eruptions of the Zendan Mountains or for some other unknown reason, this city was turned to rubble and is no more.

Takab has long been one of the centers for production of the famous Afshar rugs. Weaving in Takab flourished in the Safavid era.
