An excursion to Tughrul Bey Mausoleum, Cheshme Ali spring, Shrine of Bibi Shahrbanu.



According to the first human traces dates back as far as Neolithic items, Ray, located on the southern suburbs of outer Tehran, is the earliest settlement of the area. The city was the capital city for a while during the Parthian Empire and was renamed as Rhages. Ray became capital of Seljuk Empire in the 11th century. Ray is richer than many other ancient cities in the number of its historical monuments, among which one might refer to the 3000 years old Gebri castle the 5000 years old Cheshmeh Ali hill, the 1000 years old Bibi Shahr Banoo tomb and Shah Abbasi caravanserai. Following an hourly drive from Tehran we will arrive to the city center and then tour the historical sites. Shrine of Shah Abdul Azim, Tugrul Bey's Mausoleum, Cheshmeh Ali Spring, Medieval Islamic City Walls, Tower of Silence remains, Shrine of Bibi Shahrbanoo, are places that we visit during the tour.
