    Chashme Ali Hills and Castle



    IntroductionCheshmeh Ali Hill (Persian:تپه چشمه علی)

    Cheshmeh Ali Hill
    It is a hill with a spring. Once the ancient cavemen stopped living in caves, they settled at the banks of the hill. In 1933-6 Cheshmeh Ali hill was excavated by archaeologists from the Boston Fine Arts Museum and the Philadelphia University Cultural Foundation headed by Dr. Smith, which resulted in the discovery of 7,000-year-old artifacts. Some of the discovered objects are displayed at museums in Iran and abroad.


    Cheshmeh Ali Hill The hill, which is now entirely leveled out, was resided by Aryans about 6,000 years ago. Since Ray was used as a recreation center due to its beautiful attractions under the reign of the Qajar dynasty, Fath-Ali Shah often used to explore the city. In 1831 his portrait and that of some Qajar princes were engraved on a rock at Cheshmeh Ali hill and its surrounding was decorated with tablets covered by poetry.

    Cheshme Ali is situated at a 6 km distance from south east Tehran condition in terms of protected boundary

    the hill is situated close to the Cheshme Ali spring. In the past it was known as Surpan stream. In the south of Cheshme Ali mountain, historical remains have been found. These hills evidently are the first foundations for the city of Ray. This hill has been historically used as a location for agricultural activities, residence and even industrial activities by various tribes
