Solomon's Prison

Solomon's Prison tour


Solomon's prison is the name of hollow and cone-shaped mountain, which is located at a distance of three kilometers from West of Takhtjamshid. This mountain has been made thousands of years ago by the deposition of minerals in the lake water there. The height of this mountain from the adjacent land is 97 to 107. There is a 80 meters deep pit on top of the mountain, and it's diameter is approximately 65 meters. This mountain was a temple at the time of Manayyha 830 to 660 BC. D. There are several hot Sulphurous springs around the Solomon's mountain prison that have curative properties.

Prison's Location :

Solomon's prison which is the hill in a height of one hundred meters from the ground, was a place of sacrifice and worship in Zoroastrianism. Of course the remains of buildings around the Prison of Solomon demonstrate the importance of this holy place. When zoroastrian priest pray at the site, the intended animal were taken to the podium for sacrifice. Probably two thousand years ago the cone that today is empty of water at the mouth of the hills, was full of water. Remains of reservoirs shows that the water around the crater and in the lake is unusable. With the passage of time and the effects of sediment and the collapse of lake's crater at a depth of 100 meters, the gaps was closed and the cone was dried.
Despite the long time, still those who visit here for several times have kind of fear feeling tinged with wonder. It is obvious that in ancient times, the existence of such an extraordinary and unmatched natural factors had miraculous effects for ancient people. The people who go to highlands for construction of residential houses in the plains and bow before this place out of religious beliefs with love and majesty of the mountain, that is more than 150 meters high and has water flow on the crater.

Local beliefs :


The local people call this beautiful mountain "prison or jail Dave Solomon" they believe that Solomon imprisoned those trolls who had disobeyed his command in this mountain. It is also true an appropriate name for this mountain, because people ascribe this place to Solomon.
