Where is Mayaler?

Western IRAN - Mayaler

MALAYER is located northwest of ARAK, about 90 km (56 Miles) southeast of HAMEDAN, and around 400 km(249 Miles) southwest of TEHRAN.

It is a small town that lies among cities such as NAHAVAND, TOUSERKAN and BERONJERD, yet it has a great capacity to manufacture nice tribal rugs and carpets.

Although it is a very old city (formerly called Dowlatabad), the present city was built-in the early QAJAR period.

From the commercial point of view, it is significant for its location on the way to Khuzestan (province in southeast IRAN).

There are some caves, such as Darreh Farakh and Sardkouh, as well as the remains of old forts around this city. MALAYER has urban and medical facilities as well as guesthouses and parks. Because of its mild climate, it is a land of grape production, as well.

The interesting sites in MALAYER are:

Nushijan hill
BABA Hussein's Crypt

The exterior of Baba Hussein's crypt is very simply and exactly executed brickwork (especially noticeable on the dome). The style of architecture indicates that it was built in the 7th to the 9th centuries. It is located 50 km(32 Miles) southwest of Malayer.

The interior holds a number of symmetrical frames that start from the floor and reach the under part of the dome. It is assumed that these frames serve as decoration and reduce the amount of stress on the walls. The main height of the structure was 15.90 m, of which 7 meters is left. The ceiling of the structure is two-layered.
