Introduction: Kang village (Persian:روستای کنگ‎)

The rural village of Kang is a like a canvas of beautiful pictures in spring and summer. Every year many lovers of nature and mountaineers travel to the area to enjoy the pleasant climate of the village.

According to Tebyan website, considering the geographical situation of Khorasan Razavi province there are various natural beauties in the region; however these attractions have mostly remained away from the eyes of tourists.

The rural village of Kang is located on the southern slopes of Binalood Mountains 1700 meters from the sea level. The village is 19 kilometers away from the west of Torqabeh and 29 kilometers from the holy city of Mashhad. The Kang village is one of the rural villages of Khorasan Razavi province and it dates back to the pre-Islamic era. The ancient castle, “Qal’e Tigh Miyan”‌ castle, and “Robat Shah Abbasi”‌ guest house are indicative of the village’s old record.

The villagers speak in Farsi with the local dialect and are all Muslims and followers of the holy prophet’s Ahl-ul-Bayt.

Being located at the banks of the River Kang and adjacent to lofty mountains, the Kang village enjoys a moderate and cool weather. Since it has a steep-like configuration and its lands are not suitable for cultivation, gardening and such-like jobs prevail in the area. Cattle raising and carpet weaving are also popular among the villagers. The architecture of the village is like that of the Masooleh village. That is to say that the roof of one house is the yard of the other. Regarding the climate, the course of the winds and the direction of the sun shine, the houses are built on a northeast-southwest line to optimize energy consumption. The houses are covered with adobe and the genuine historical context of it has mostly preserved.

The graveyard of the village has old tombs with historical symbols and signs. On every grave there is a sign indicating the tribe, job and gender of the dead person. It is said that the first group of immigrants to the village were the “Miroon”‌ tribe from Sistan region in the east of Iran. Barberry, saffron, sugar candy and different fruits are some of the souvenirs of this village. There is a kind of local bread baked with potato and mountainous herbs.
