Abdol-Ghaffar Khan Caravanserai, or Bagh-e Sheikh [Sheikh’s Garden] is one of the most beautifully designed buildings on the Iranian plateau. It is situated 8kms to the east of Saveh in Bagh-e Sheikh village, Markazi Province.
Iranian and German archaeologists have been carrying out excavations at the Rivi site for the past five years. This is a mound near the Mahen & Samalghan town, 5kms from the Ashkhaneh region in the North Khorasan Province of Iran. The excavation area measures 110 hectares.
Following climate changes in Iran over recent years and long-drawn periods of drought and flash floods in some parts of the country, the old way of storing water in reservoirs has been revived here once again.
