Roudbar (RUDBAR, ROODBAR), around 250 km(155 Miles) northwest of TEHRAN, is in a unique geographical position. The huge SEPHID ROOD (White River) dam is located just beside the city. ROUDBAR is also famous for its constant strong winds, so there are many windmills that generate electricity. Olives are another significant product of this city, which is covered with olive trees and gardens.

Roudbar is located on a geological fault, and in 1995 a massive earthquake destroyed the entire city. ROUDBAR has many historical sites. Just fourteen kilometers east of the town on the road from TEHRAN to RASHAT, there is a little coffee shop called "Kalati." Across the river from this coffee shop, on the southern bank of SEPHID ROOD (White River) lies the village of Lot, which serves as a river port for the villages located in the valley of Gohar Rud.

Due to its natural advantages, scenic beauty, mildness of the climate, and fertility of the soil, from ancient times this area has served as the home of rulers and ruling classes whose lands extended over vast areas of northern IRAN. Consequently, there are numerous large and small archaeological mounds in this valley where the remains of forgotten ancient cultures are buried. The most important among them are:

  • Zeynab Bejar
  • Pileh Qal'eh
  • Jazim Kool

Roudbar, MARLIK MAN and WOMAN status
MARLIK Man&Woman
The MARLIK people flourished for two or three centuries during the late second and early first millennium BCE. MARLIK influence extended to other parts of the Middle East. It can be theorized that they used MARLIK as a cemetery because of its religious importance; that their great school of art could not have existed without depending on a strong political power whose center could not have been far from the Marlik royal cemetery; that this culture dominated a vast area including Gilan, Mazandaran and Azerbaijan.

Finally, it can be theorized that, at the beginning of the first millennium BCE, under pressure from western states such as Assyria, the power of the Marlik people gradually declined and that the remnants of these people were driven to the central part of the Iranian plateau.
