Konar Sandal archaeological site in photos

Konar Sandal is a Bronze Age archaeological site located in 30 km southwest of Jiroft near the village of the same name which is part of the city of Anbarabad in southern Kerman province.

In ancient times, the Konar-Sandal hills had been used as a religious center. There is a temple on top of the hills, recognized as one of the most important ziggurats ever found in the world and over four million bricks had been used for its construction.

Archaeologists recently managed to discover manuscripts dating from about 3000 years ago, i.e., before the invention of writing in Mesopotamia.

The clay tablets found in Iraq highlights the greatness of this civilization.

Recent excavations in Jiroft revealed new dimensions of the ancient civilization of the city. Archaeologists are busy digging these hills to discover the secret of an ancient land.

Around these hills, there are other archaeological sites including cemetery Mahtout-Abad.
