Scenic Rural Landscapes

According to an ancient Iranian tradition, the exterior walls of the houses in Maryan and Aghvelar villages in the northwestern Talesh region are painted white. In fact, the word Aghvelar means white houses in Turkish. Many years ago, archeologists discovered antiquities in the local cemetery dating back 3,500 years. The discovery brought this region into the spotlight.
