Where is HAMEDAN?


HAMEDAN is one of the oldest cities not only of IRAN, but of the world. Its historical origins date back several centuries before Christ. HAMEDAN was the summer capital of the Median and was then called Ekbatan or Hegmataneh, which means a place of assembly. It is thus one of the cradles of Oriental Civilization.

According to historical records, there was once a castle in this city by the name of Haft Hessar (seven walls) which had a thousand rooms and whose grandeur equaled the Tower of Babylon. All the nations living around IRAN coveted the prominent location of Hameden and, from ancient times until recent centuries, have invaded the city several times.

First, the Assyrians destroyed HAMEDAN. It was ruined again and again during the invasion of the Mongols under Tamerlane. Finally, in recent centuries, the Ottomans attacked the city several times, but HAMEDAN heroically stood against the enemies and courageously withstood all the damages it sustained.

HAMEDAN is the homeland of great scholars and men of letters like Einalqozat Hamdeni, Khajeh Rashidoddin Fazlollah, Adham Hamdeni, Baba Taher Orian and Mirzadeh Eshqi.

The tombs of Avicenna and Baba taher are located in this city. It should be noted that Hamden has preserved its importance in the post-Islamic period.

HAMEDAN produces beautiful tribal hand-woven rugs made in the city and the areas surrounding HAMEDAN in the west of IRAN. HAMEDAN's rugs are quite durably constructed due to the rugged wool spun from hardy sheep in the higher, cooler altitudes.

The patterns vary in rugs from this city from geometric, to small animal and floral elements and sometimes the famous HERATI design.

HAMEDAN is an important city in the carpet industry because, along with its many surrounding villages, it produces countless numbers of floor pieces that are all unique and remarkable in their own way.

The rugs manufactured around the city of HAMEDAN are all handmade, with pile entirely of wool and mainly natural vegetable dyes. Very rarely if ever is silk seen in rugs from this region.

The foundation of the rug (warp and weft) is usually cotton, and in some cases goat hair. The patterns are usually simple geometric arrangements with primary and vibrant colors.

These rugs are overall very good in quality and most of them have been known to last surprisingly long periods of time.
